The secluded location to the west of the Long Water in Kensington Gardens makes this small and airy gallery for contemporary art an attractive destination. A rolling two-monthly programme of exhibitions featuring up-to-the-minute artists along with the recent opened Sackler Gallery just over the water keeps the Serpentine in the arts news, as does the annual Serpentine Pavilion: every spring an internationally renowned architect is commissioned to build a new pavilion that opens to the public between June and September. There's a good little art bookshop too, which handily stays open in between exhibitions while the gallery space itself closes.

 Every summer the Serpentine Gallery is adorned with a Pavilion designed by world renowned architects, and every summer it is amazing. Last years colourful tent-like maze could fill even the most cynical of visitors with childlike wonder, encouraging visitors to explore and play among the tunnels and ribbons. I can’t wait to visit the new pavilion, which opened its doors to the public yesterday, and will welcome guests until October.

Right in the heart of Hyde park it's a super place to pop in and tick the culture box before chilling out in the park. The Pavillion this year is beautiful, a lovely spot to grab a coffee and ponder.
