Julian Opie’s exhibition in the Gallery may have closed today, but we are delighted to announce that our much-loved Curly hair (the LED monolith walking figure outside the Manor) will remain until the end of the year, continuing to illuminate the forecourt throughout our winter season of events.

Hope you’re as pleased as we are ☺️

⬆️ How to make an entrance.

Sir John Soane certainly knew how to make a good first impression with his grand tribune hallway at Pitzhanger Manor. Designed to impress friends and clients the faux marbling and coloured glass give the space the feeling of an Italian villa - but without the weather 🌤
