The biggest and most famous of all the art fairs returns for another year in Regent's Park. Over 160 galleries from across the globe are represented, placing the creme de la creme of London's contemporary art galleries alongside their international counterparts. For hardcore art fans, there's nothing that beats the fun of the Frieze art fair, where famous names rub against the up-and-coming stars of tomorrow. 

But don't limit yourself to just browsing the artworks. One of the hottest things about Frieze is their programme of talks and other curated events including Frieze Music, Frieze Film and Frieze Projects. Find out more here

As if the manicured grass and pretty and pristine flowers aren't reason enough to go have a picnic in Regent's Park this summer, it's now also adorned by 25 sculptures.

They're on display in the English Garden until October and it's well worth a visit, not only because it's free but because it's really impressive.

Many of the sculptures are huge with interesting colours, textures and shapes.

It's great just to stroll around by yourself and check it all out but nothing creates a debate quite like contemporary art (bar politics) which can be viewed so differently by people. While I loved the giant glittering pink knot (Fiddlersfortune), my friend's reaction to it was 'it looks like a big intestine'.

We both did agree though that Invisible Mother (a skeleton draped over a chair in a fountain) is creepy and morbid.

The rest of the art included a work which is a long pole of footballs stacked on top of each other and although they don't look it, they're actually made of bronze; a giant black evil Mickey Mouse-type character; African heads, and a large white tree.

The setting is of course beautiful, every artwork can't help but be complemented by the striking green grass and flawless white Regency houses in the background.

So if you're going to get out and make the most of the London summer why not enjoy some great art at the same time?


The weird and wonderful world of contemporary art. If you get a chance you have to go so you can be inspired and challenged.

Check out the frieze projects, Asad Raza project will teleport you into a different world.

Where as Jeremy Herbert will also take you where you have never been before.

Tickets are expensive and the art even more but interesting and exciting for everyone as let's you see the world in a way you have never dreamed.
