What to expect
The London Art Fair has been running since 1989 in the creative space of the Business Design Centre.

The fair is home to an eclectic array of events too – here are some of the highlights.
Opening and closing times
The London Art Fair runs from 16 to 20 January 2019 and opens at 11:00 every day. The closing time varies between 17:00 and 21:00 depending on which day you choose to visit.
