Dulwich Picture Gallery is the greatest find in London. A magnificent collection of Old Master paintings including works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Murillo, Van Dyck, Poussin, Claude, Watteau, Gainsborough, and many others.

The Gallery, the oldest in the country, was designed by SirJohn Soane in 1811 and is considered the perfect building for showing paintings. Almost every important gallery designed since has made reference to the Gallery.

With three world-class, critically-acclaimed exhibitions each year, an education department that has won 20 awards in as many years, and its setting in the beautiful 18th century village of Dulwich, the Gallery is an essential destination for all art lovers.
