We were a bit disappointed to miss the John Singer Sargent exhibition, recently closed, but the upside was cheaper entry and minimal crowds. It’s a beautiful gallery- first public gallery in the world and houses some Rembrandt , van Dyck, and Gainsborough to name a...More

The building is a Soane's; the exhibition lovely (with Rembrandt and Rubens); the location idyllic in wooded area and garden. It's easy to take the train from Victoria to West Dulwich (just don't get lost on Victoria Street!). But once there, it is a good...More

I came along to see the John Singer Sargent exhibition which I thoroughly enjoyed. The exhibition space is small and is very easily overwhelmed by the numbers of visitors. The permanent collection was a real delight and included a lot of 17th century Dutch and...More

We went today to Dulwich picture gallery. My husband is disabled and we decided to concentrate on just the Singer Sargeant exhibition. Having been asked to wait ten minutes to go in on our return a "jobsworth" on the door would not let us in...More

Dulwich Picture Gallery is small, but perfectly formed. The gallery is housed in a lovely Georgian building, with a relaxing garden outside with plenty of seating. The on-site café is really good and you have the option to sit outside in the summer. The gallery...More

Came here to indulge in John Singer Sargent's water colours - which no art lover must miss - it is a sublime treat to appreciate pure genius at work in such a fluid medium. But the gallery is lovely. Homely, in a lovely area of...More

This is a very particular type of place to visit, probably not for everyone, but if you like historic and special collections then this is worth the journey. The art work is very well curated and easy to access. It's a bite-sized gallery so you...More

This is a great gallery to visit, with a permanent collection and often an extra exhibition as well (at the moment it is John Singer Sargent). In leafy Dulwich, it is set in its own gardens and has an excellent cafe where the food is...More

Dulwich Picture Gallery is easily accessible from London by train and is well worth the detour. We went to see the Singer Sargeant watercolor exhibit which was well staged and explained. At the same time you can view their permanent collection which is on par...More

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.

Hello! If you purchase a temporary exhibition ticket that will also give you access to the Permanent Collection without the need to buy an additional ticket.
