The South London Gallery

The South London Gallery is one of the leading institutions for contemporary art in London, showcasing a wide range of forward-thinking exhibitions alongside a slice of south London’s historic background.

The gallery was founded in the 19th century by philanthropist William Rossiter to ‘bring art to the people of south London’. Today the gallery comprises its original site at 65 Peckham Road; the Fire Station just 120 metres away at 82 Peckham Road; Art Block, a space for local children and families on Sceaux Gardens Estate and an artist-designed garden.
