Connected venues

Spaces for connecting, engaging and creating

King's exists in the heart of London, one of the cultural capitals of the world. Spread over five campuses, the university is connected to a wide variety of different cultural spaces. Some are permanent museums with a long and prestigious history, while others provide flexible exhibition and performance spaces for the university's staff and students and for cultural partners and collaborators.
