I always enjoy this gallery. National Art fund members get a discount and so do students and the disabled. the special exhibiton galleries are rather narrow so try to pick a less busy time to go. Special events for children are well organised

This beautiful little gallery is well known to 'those in the know'. Located in Dulwich village, lovely setting, almost rural. Stages some excellent exhibitions. Has an 'on trend' café with indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of on the road parking.

Visited Dulwich for the first time in years, just for the Edward Bawden exhibition. This was a really enjoyable exhibition, well-displayed, and with an informative great audio-guide. An absolute joy!

Small and intimate, but just a stunning collection of art. Highly recommend to pop in if you are in the area. Beautiful little Canaletto also hidden away in one of the corners. Loved it.

We found it so interesting that we were two hours in the actual exhibition. That was also partly because we seemed to arrive at the busiest time, around 11.00 a.m.
