“Designed by the immaculately progressive David Chipperfield, Turner Contemporary is probably the most elegant gallery interior in Britain right now.” — Waldermar Januszczak, art critic
Our landmark gallery is the largest exhibition space in the South East outside of London.
Designed by the multi award-winning David Chipperfield Architects, the gallery sits on Margate seafront, on the same site where JMW Turner stayed when visiting the town in the 19th Century.
From here, the building offers sensational views over the North Kent Coast, captures the dramatic light effects and gives you a unique opportunity to engage with and explore world-class art. Through our rolling programme of temporary exhibitions, events and learning opportunities, we make intriguing links between historical and contemporary art, presenting art in new, dynamic ways.
