Royal Academy of Arts

Modern art gallery in central London

Get out of the house and get arty with the family this weekend in London at the Royal Academy of Arts.

For 250 years, the RA has existed to champion art and artists. This year, they’ve opened up our newly expanded campus with free displays, new spots to eat, drink and shop, and much more.

They’re run by the Royal Academicians, artists and architects elected by their peers in recognition of their exceptional work. They’re home to Britain’s longest established art school, the RA Schools.

Every year since 1768 we’ve held an annual Summer Exhibition, the largest open-submission art exhibition in the world. They present their collection of art and architecture in free displays throughout our home on Piccadilly.

And they put on world-class exhibitions of art from around the world, welcoming hundreds of thousands of people to our galleries each year.
