London Art Week Winter will celebrate an array of exceptional art from across seven millennia. This will be an eye-opening and unique opportunity to come and explore, enjoy and discover world-class art in the heart of London. Hosted across more than thirty of London's most notable galleries, as well as three leading auction houses, our summer events have welcomed visitors from around the globe to experience our treasures up close for the past 17 years.
