It’s that time again at the Royal Academy: another summer, another Summer Exhibition. And with institutional pedigree alongside art that you can’t help but eyeball, this show promises to be just as big, bold and celebratory as ever.
If you’re planning on dropping by, then make sure you keep your whole day free – there’s a lot to see. In fact, it’s the world’s largest open submission art show! Which means there's totally different work every year. And if you need any more persuasion, then have a peep at these five reasons to visit. It’s going to be picture perfect.
The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2019 kicked off this year on June 10 and will run until August 12. To get there, head to Burlington House, Piccadilly, Mayfair, W1J 0BD. Adult tickets cost £18 (£16 without donation). Under 16s go free with a fee-paying adult. Find out more here.
