Nestled next to Camberwell School of Art and with Goldsmiths to the east, you’d expect the South London Gallery to know its art onions – and you’d be right. With its new fire-station building, and a history of shows by artists including Katharina Grosse and Lawrence Weiner, it’s fast becoming one of the city’s most important art spaces

A wide variety of contemporary art exhibitions every 2-3 months, with a fantastic live art and film programme, delicious cafe, brilliant shop & beautiful new artist designed garden.
I'm ashamed to say I only visited South London Gallery for the first time last week, to see the Thomas Hirschhorn installation. Aside from having a fascinating history and a cracking cafe, SLG (formally known as South London Art Gallery - SLAG *snigger*) has gorgeous exhibition spaces and the current Hirschhorn installation is brilliant (as are the compelling films from Norwegian artist Ane Hjort Guttu upstairs). Both of these exhibitions finish in September, but if you can't make it before then it's well worth a trip to peckham.
