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.

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.
