Hayward Gallery, London

3.7
#80 of 419 in Shopping in London
'One of London's most important spaces for displaying contemporary art, the Hayward Gallery is housed in an austere 1968 building that is both equally loved and derided by the majority of Londoners. Whichever camp you fall into, you'll agree that it makes an excellent hanging space for the blockbuster exhibitions it puts on.' (Lonely Planet)

  • Great exhibition of visually deceptive art. Not sure what to call it, but modern and conceptual. The staff is quite friendly here and he brutalist building rather nicely suited to this type of use. The cafe was quite nice too and I had a coffee and ate a sandwich I brought in before heading out into the rain and cold.
  • Whenever I visit London, I make sure to see the exhibitions at Hayward Gallery! Was extremely pleased to see Kader Attia's exhibition. Top notch! I was also very happy to find out that my ticket became half price because of my National Art Pass! The staff were very nice and helpful as well. Hayward Gallery is definitely one of my favourite contemporary art venue in London and I recommend it highly to everyone who is art enthusiasts.
