Here’s What You Need To Know About Dulwich’s New Summer Pavilion

Last week, to celebrate their 200th birthday, Dulwich Picture Gallery opened its very first summer pavilion.

Designed by Camberwell designers IF_DO, the pavilion is the perfect place to spend a summer day. Here’s why you should take a visit to south London:


It’s artsy as hell.

The Pavilion Bar, in partnership with The Camberwell Arms, will be serving up a delightful menu of cocktails, bar snacks and ice cream all summer long.

It’s open ’til late on Fridays.

On Friday evenings throughout June and July, the pavilion will play host to various ‘Lates’ with a number of different themes. The events are free, but you’ll need to reserve a place here. 


It’s surrounded by lots of lovely green space.


The Pavilion is open from June 2nd until October 8th. Entry is free, although there is still a charge for indoor art exhibitions at the Dulwich Picture Gallery.
