Mile End Arts Pavilion
The Mile End Art Pavilion is a stunning gallery space with a
glass frontage overlooking a small lake available for hire by
artists. Set within Mile End Park and buried in a grass
bank the Mile End Art Pavilion is the perfect space for exhibitions
This large well lit space can be adapted to display the work in
a number of ways and is of a sufficient size to allow for
collaborative exhibitions. The Mile End Art Pavilion is just
20 minutes from Bond Street on the Central line and only a 5 minute
walk from Mile End Underground Station.
The first impression of this building is the light flooding in,
followed by the vastness of the space. There are a number of panels
that can be used to subdivide the space as required. Large imposing
support structures lend the space a contemporary feel. The building
is completely accessible to those with disability.
