Dulwich Gallery is so good at bringing together collections from abroad. This Dutch artist is a one off, his rural landscapes are sublime putting in real people and animals with such detail. His skies are superb with a great sense of distance achieved.All his subject matter is the same which suggests he was trying to corner the market for this... More

Excellent gallery in an intimate setting. There is a lovely park across the street and Dulwich is adorable with nice places to eat.

I go here a lot because there is always something wonderful to look at. The permanent collection is world class - old masters, Renaissance jewels, medieval wonders. It has a great restaurant and a fine gift shop too. If you become a friend, it's all free!

I visit this gallery reasonably regularly it is just enough for an afternoon of art with regular exhibitions. There is also the Dulwich Park next door for a bit of nature too.

We visited on a wet Saturday and lingered with others. At 3.00 a free guided tour started and had just finished at 4.30 as we were leaving. We wondered ourselves as I wanted to sit and view and my husband quickly read the titles and went to the cafe. There was a shop with reasonably priced items on art and... More

When I lived in London as a young man in the early '90s a visit to the gallery was on my To Do list before moving back to the US. Unfortunately, at the end of three years I still hadn't made the journey to South London to see it. On a recent trip I rectified that. This is a splendid... More

A first retrospectuve of this great 17th century landscape painter is one to savour. His paintings were very collectable and desirable in his day and they remain so to cognoscenti - though he is not perhaps as well known as later Dutch painters. A truly brilliant draughtsman he was meticulous almost to the point of obssession in his preparatory drawings,... More

Just a 15 minute train ride from Victoria Station takes you to this little gem of a museum specializing in 17th and 18th Century Dutch, and other European, Masters. Situated in an upscale English village, it also has a very good restaurant and gift shop.

Wonderful Dou's, Rembrandt's, Canaletto's. Download the Dulwich App and hear all the information about them. We took the Victoria Line to Brixton and the P4 bus dropped us off in front of the Dulwich Park. What a glorious day!
