Self-led visits are available on Wednesdays 11-4pm.

Please note that we require at least 4 weeks notice before a visit.

From 8 March – 9 June 2024, a group exhibition, Acts of Resistance, will be on display. Content guidance: Art work in this exhibition includes strong language, nudity and sexual images, references to drug use, sexual violence, femicide, female genital mutilation, gender and sexuality-based discrimination, genocide and racism


  • You will be greeted at reception by a member of the education team on arrival. 
  • We do not have a cloakroom however the Clore Studio is available to book for use as a cloakroom, lunch space or activity space. Just let us know 
  • Our exhibitions programme changes throughout the year. Please check the What’s On page to see which exhibitions will be on display when you plan to visit. 
  • Where possible, we encourage teachers to make a visit to the exhibitions beforehand in order to assess the suitability for their groups.  
  • Teachers are responsible for the behaviour and conduct of students at all times. 
  • We ask groups to maintain a staff to student ratio of 1:10 students 
  • Please note the SLG has two buildings which are a short walk from one another: the main gallery and the fire station gallery  
  • The main gallery is a single large space and is able to accommodate groups of up to 30, depending on the exhibition layout 
  • In the fire station building, there are 4 smaller gallery spaces. Groups will need to split into groups of 6 to enter each room with one staff member per group
