Update April 2014: link to new second gallery and additional photo

The Serpentine Gallery has no permanent collections, but instead shows a programme of modern and contemporary art exhibitions. Admission to these is free, and details of what?s on at any particular time can be checked on the gallery?s website (below). We particularly enjoy the photographic exhibitions, but you may also find sculpture or paintings on show. Most exhibitions last a couple of months ? and between them the gallery is closed, so do check what, if anything, is on before making a special visit. Or if you're taking a walk through Kensington Gardens or nearby Hyde Park, why not detour to see if there's anything here of interest.

As well as the exhibitions, there are various talks and other events. The gallery is open daily, 10.00AM ? 6.00PM. Nearby is a new second gallery, the Serpentine Sackler - see my separate review.
