See world-class art from the best international galleries with the Frieze Art Fairs in Regent’s Park.
Every year, Frieze hosts two important art fairs side by side in the Royal Park: Frieze London and Frieze Masters. The first showcases the best of contemporary art, while the latter specialises in art from the past.
Take a stroll through the Sculpture Park in Regent’s Park’s English Gardens for free to admire contemporary and historical sculptures by world-famous artists represented in both Frieze London and Frieze Masters.
