Hayward Gallery

Hayward Gallery has a long history of presenting work by the world's most adventurous and innovative artists. For free entry to all exhibitions become a Southbank Centre Member.

Opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 1968, it is an outstanding example of sixties brutalist architecture and is one of the few remaining buildings of this style. It was designed by a group of young architects, including Dennis Crompton, Warren Chalk and Ron Herron. Hayward Gallery is named after the late Sir Isaac Hayward, the former leader of the London County Council.

After five decades of intense artistic activity and recent exhibitions from the likes of Martin Creed, David Shrigley, Tracey Emin and Jeremy Deller, the doors of Hayward Gallery closed on Monday 21 September 2015 for two years of refurbishment, along with Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room.
