About Bethlem Gallery

The Bethlem Royal Hospital is set in 240 acres of stunning grounds with bluebell woods in the spring. Visitors are welcome to enjoy our orchard and meadow walks, and, on advertised days throughout the year, the Occupational Therapy Walled Garden is open to the public. There is free parking available on site and disabled access provided. Since February 2015 the Gallery and Museum has been situated under one roof in an impressive listed deco building at the front of the site. If your group is larger than 10 please contact us before your visit. There is a restaurant, Costa Coffee and a community centre on site for refreshments, open from 9am – 3pm Monday to Friday. For group bookings and tailored visits please contact our colleagues at the museum www.museumofthemind.org.uk Admission free.
