Dulwich Picture Gallery was designed with three acres of gardens. Populated with over 25 species of trees, including the Japanese Maple and Kentucky Coffee trees, the Gardens are open all year round for you to enjoy.
Sculpture in the Gardens
As you explore, you'll find sculpture in the Gardens to touch and explore like the circle of (very realistic!) tree stumps, Bronze Oak Grove by Rob and Nick Carter or Peter Randall Page's Walking the Dog featuring an ancient Greek-inspired motif that can also be seen on the frieze of the Gallery building.
Take a closer look at the Gallery
Enjoy Sir John Soane's architectural feat. Notice the pioneering roof-lanterns on the top of the building, that let natural light into the Gallery, ideal for viewing paintings.
You'll also find our very own red telephone box. This London icon, designed by Giles Gilbert Scott, was directly influenced by Soane's design for the Mausoleum's domed roof.
Weddings and events
The Gardens are also available for private hire.
