|Dulwich Picture Gallery
College Road, SE21
Nearest Tube: North Dulwich
|This off-the-beaten-track art gallery in the London district of Dulwich is the oldest public art gallery in Britain, having opened in 1817. The building that houses the gallery was designed by Sir John Soane and it is considered by many to be as much of an attraction in itself as the collection it houses.|
The collection is mainly made up of 17th and 18th century art, all hung in Regency splendour. Highlights of the collection include pieces by Rembrandt, Rubens, Gainsborough and Poussin.
Temporary exhibitions are put on throughout the year. The gallery is open daily except Mondays but hours vary so check in advance. Admission costs around £3 for adults.
