Today I woke up and felt pretty cultural so I said to myself, let’s go to a museum!
Going central on a Sunday it’s quite risky: overground not working and so on. So I remembered there’s a local Gallery not too far from home.
The South London Gallery is located in Peckham, to be precise you can find it on 65-67 Peckham Road and from Elephant & Castle you can take buses number 12/171 (Peckham Road/Southampton Way), it won’t take too long.
The gallery hosts contemporary art exhibitions and live art events. According to their website they host 5 exhibition a year. The current one is called “Welcome to Iraq” and it was originally shown in the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013.
I had a walk around and I found it really interesting and “different” from all the other exhibitions. The place is not too big so I will say that in half an hour the tour is completed. They also have a little shop where you can buy books about the current exhibitions and other artistic topics.
The real gem is the café next door called No. 67 Café & Restaurant. I didn’t had the chance to try it yet, but the atmosphere looked amazing so I really can’t wait to give it a try.
On the menu you can find soft drinks, a long list of wines, a daily lunch/dinner menu and there’s also the weekend brunch option. If the weather is nice there is also the chance to sit outside in the lovely backyard. The café is also on Instagram, if you feel hungry you shouldn’t have a look at it…
So, what are we waiting for? Let’s keep it local!
