Soane Galleries

Sir John Soane’s design for Dulwich Picture Gallery has been an inspiration to gallery architecture worldwide. Five perfectly proportioned rooms interlink to form the enfilade, famous for its rich red walls and pioneering top lighting. The Gallery is a stunning venue in which to hold wedding receptions, seated dinners, corporate parties and private drinks receptions.
