The Serpentine Gallery is one of the major art gallery focuses on modern and contemporary art. The gallery is located in a beautiful location surrounding by Kensington Gardens. Established in 1970 and housed in a classical 1934 tea pavilion, it takes its name from the nearby Serpentine Lake.

Notable artists who have been exhibited there include Man Ray, Henry Moore, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Paula Rego, Bridget Riley, Allan McCollum, Anish Kapoor, Christian Boltanski, Philippe Parreno, Richard Prince, Wolfgang Tillmans, Gerhard Richter, Gustav Metzger, Damien Hirst, and Jeff Koons.

On the ground at the gallery's entrance is a permanent work by Ian Hamilton Finlay in collaboration with Peter Coates, dedicated to Diana, Princess of Wales, the Serpentine's former patron.

In 2013 with the opening of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, the Serpentine becomes two galleries, being a five-minute walk from each other. This new chapter unfolds with an unrivalled programme of exhibitions and events across both Galleries and into the park.
