Serpentine Gallery


London Hit List #12 The Serpentine Gallery

The Serpentine Gallery is located in Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens. It was originally built as a tea pavillion in the 1930s – much nicer than the tea/coffee stands that you get in parks today! The focus is on modern/contemporary art which I find to be a nice juxtaposition to the quite classical style of the building. They don’t really have a permanent collection but exhibits that change regularly – giving you loads of reasons to go back and visit again! Each summer they commission temporary pavilions from top architects like Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry, the most recent being by Jean Nouvel. The best thing of all – admission is free! So you really have no excuse but to visit!
