View Luke Jerram's Gaia spectacularly lit and illuminated in London's oldest gothic Cathedral on selected evenings in October

See Gaia and Southwark Cathedral in a new light!

Gaia is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven metres in diameter and created from 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface the artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet, floating in three dimensions.

The installation aims to create a sense of the Overview Effect, which was first described by author Frank White in 1987. Common features of the experience for astronauts are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

Entry charges apply when visiting during these evenings and tickets must be booked in advance.

We will be operating timeslots for evening admission. Please make sure you book for the correct evening and time.

Opening hours are 6.30pm - 9pm with last admission at 8.30pm.

Daytime Opening 

Gaia will also be open for visitors during the day (Monday - Saturday).

As we anticipate a high demand to see the exhibit we are operating an entry only by ticket system.  Entry during the day is free (9.30am - 4.30pm) but tickets must be booked in advance and our suggested donation is £3.00.  Please visit the link for further information

Additional charges will apply for evening admission and special events.
