Resembling an unprepossessing 1930s tearoom in the midst of leafy Kensington Gardens, this is one of London’s most important contemporary art galleries. Damien Hirst, Andreas Gursky, Louise Bourgeois, Gabriel Orozco, Tomoko Takahashi and Jeff Koons have all exhibited here. A leading architect (who has never built in the UK) is annually commissioned to build a new ‘Summer Pavilion’ nearby, open from June to October.

The galleries run a full program of readings, talks and open-air cinema screenings.
