Nine ways to have a great weekend in Dulwich

Dulwich is one of the few places that managed to preserve the atmosphere of "old London" and the fabulous country charm. It is ideal for a long walk with family or friends. We will tell you how to spend time in Dulwich with fun and usefully.

1. Go to the Dulwich Picture Gallery. The Dulwich Picture Gallery was the first public art gallery in the world. It was founded by Sir Francis Bourgeois. In 1811 he gave to the gallery his entire collection of paintings, so that the public could also enjoy the beauty of the canvases and develop spiritually. And the building itself was designed by the famous architect Sir John Soane. It is really an interesting historical place, which every Londoner should visit.
