Civil Ceremonies

Dulwich Picture Gallery is licenced for civil ceremonies in both the Soane Gallery and Linbury Room, which can accommodate between 10 and 150 guests.

“The Gallery was so accommodating and well organised throughout the day.  We loved the fact that we had the use of the traditional Gallery and access to the gardens, making use of both the indoor and outdoor spaces. The venue provided a fantastic backdrop to all our photographs and helped create a day full of happy memories.”
-- Rebecca and Ryan Gonsalves, Bride and Groom.
