The Serpentine Gallery in London, along with the new Serpentine Sackler Gallery, is one of the the two Serpentine’s contemporary art pavilions located in the capital of the United Kingdom.

The Serpentine Gallery originally opened in 1970 in a former 1930s tea pavilion near the Serpentine Lake, in the heart of the fascinating Kensington Gardens Royal Park.

The gallery is dedicated to promoting contemporary art, and organizes important and cutting-edge temporary exhibitions as well as educational activities, particularly addressed to children, families and schools.

At short distance from the Serpentine Gallery, on the other side of the Serpentine basin, a new venue was opened in 2013, the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, where also a shop and a restaurant are available to the public.

Since 2000, in Summer, the Serpentine Galleries also set up a temporary pavilion, designed by one of the most important International architects, that over time has become one of the most popular seasonal cultural attractions in London.

The Serpentine Gallery is fully accessible to disabled people.
