venue

Hayward Gallery

Hayward Gallery is a world-renowned contemporary art gallery and a landmark of Brutalist architecture.

The exhibition programme focuses on presenting a wide range of adventurous and influential artists from across the world, while its rich history includes exhibitions by modern pioneers such as Paul Klee, Lucio Fontana, Francis Bacon, Bridget Riley, and Anthony Caro.

About our renovation project

Between September 2015 and January 2018, the gallery was closed for a two-year refurbishment project, the focus of which was the replacement of its 66 iconic pyramid rooflights. 

This project was made possible through the generous support of Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund, trusts and foundations and over 50,000 individuals and Southbank Centre friends supporting our Let The Light In fundraising campaign.

What the Hayward brings to the party is a genuine independence of vision: a sense that the crowd is being led, not followed. Hayward shows don’t preach, accuse or bang the drum. They dart about the perimeters of art, making clever connections and delightful observations.
Waldemar Januszczak, The Sunday Times

Hayward Gallery opening times

11am – 7pm every day except Tuesdays when the gallery is closed.
Late night opening on Thursdays until 9pm.

Cafe

12 noon – 3pm, every day except Tuesdays when the gallery cafe is closed.

We welcome wheelchair users and guide companion dogs. Wheelchairs and gallery stools are available for visitors by visiting the Hayward Gallery cloakroom when you arrive (subject to availability).

Talk to a member of staff at the foyer entrance if you have a disability that means you can’t queue, or you need extra assistance.

Cloakroom

The charge is £1 per item, which must be collected on the same day they are stored. Items left here are at the owner’s risk and we cannot accept any responsibility for loss or damage, from any cause, to items left in the cloakroom. The cloakroom is for coats, umbrellas and small bags and has a limited capacity. Hayward Gallery reserves the right to check any item being carried into the gallery. We regret any inconvenience this may cause. We regret that we cannot accept suitcases, holdalls or large backpacks in the cloakroom or in the gallery.

Toilets

Toilets are located in the foyer and inside the gallery. An accessible toilet and gender neutral inclusive toilets are located in the foyer.

​A Changing Places toilet is located on Level 1, Royal Festival Hall, next to the JCB Glass Lift, for the exclusive use of disabled people who need personal assistance to use the toilet. The key for this room is available from the Welcome Hub, Level 2, Royal Festival Hall. The facility includes a height-adjustable bench, tracking hoist system, a centrally-placed toilet, a height-adjustable basin and a shower. For health and safety reasons we do not provide slings. Visitors are asked to bring their own which should be compatible with the loop system. The maximum weight for the hoist and the height adjustable bench is 200kg. The facility is open daily 10am – 11pm.
