Came to gallery via an article in the National Art Fund magazine about a brick garden by artist Gabriel Orozco. Very interesting project, nice time lapse video about the construction, unusual serene place. Further exhibitions in main gallery. Good spot to go when in area.

The south London Gallery is not very populated with tourist but it is nice to watch. The adjacent book shop is also great.
