Regent's Park is one of my favourite parks in London, and it becomes more enthralling in the summer when part of it is turned into a sculpture park by Frieze. I believe that art needs to be accessible to the public, hence, I consider this annual temporary outdoor display of works by contemporary artists a highlight of the city.

As always, there are sculptures that are intriguing, bizarre, incomprehensible, fun, and underwhelming... but it is always a joy to watch how people interact with them. The sculptures will be on display until 8th October, so there is plenty of time to see them for yourself.
