Dulwich

Lending weight to the idea that the best things come in small packages, this bijou gallery – the first to be purpose-built in the UK – was designed by Sir John Soane in 1811. It's a beautiful space that shows off Soane's ingenuity with and interest in lighting effects.

It also has a fine programme of temporary exhibitions and live events and an appealing café.
