About this room

Tucked away in its own secluded garden, the Keepers Cottage is a tranquil and self-contained space, with a private bathroom and garden, a blank white canvas just waiting for those final touches.

Set in what was - until recent years - the Keepers Cottage, this rustic grade two listed building brings a more intimate space to what we here at Dulwich Picture Gallery can offer.

An exquisitely proportioned room, ideal for those smaller events seeking a more private and cosy setting, the cottage is perfect for corporate meetings, private dinners and smaller receptions with its adjacent private Gardens and fully functional kitchenette.

This versatile space can be transformed for all occasions and includes a private garden and kitchenette which is accessible. The room also comes with full AV set-up and a large screen HD TV for conferences and Slideshows.

Rules of the space

As the first purpose-built public Gallery, DPG's grade II listed status prevents us from allowing dry-hire in the majority of venues to protect the priceless works and historical status of the space.

As each wedding at Dulwich Picture Gallery is arranged on a bespoke basis to your exact requirements, all costs for catering, marquee hire, entertainment and flowers would be on top of the venue hire and need to be arranged through our list of approved suppliers who know and have previous experience with the Gallery , all of whom can be found at the back of our brochure.

As a listed building housing rare and priceless artworks we tend to only work with our own approved list of suppliers because of their experience with the gallery and insurances through our tender process. Feel free to contact any of the recommended suppliers for initial quotes or recommendations to make your day as special as you can for you both.
