Access to The Photographers' Gallery

Both ground floors have ramped access. The Gallery has a toilet fully equipped with disabled facilities. Access to the Print Sales Gallery is by the staircase only: the listed status of the building does not allow for the installation of a lift.


The Photographers' Gallery, the first independent gallery in Britain devoted to photography, was founded in 1971 at 8 Great Newport Street. This building now houses the Gallery's primary exhibition space and a bookshop. In 1980 the Gallery also moved into 5 Great Newport Street, initially rented, the freehold was purchased in 1986 thanks to a successful funding campaign.

The Gallery has developed a reputation as this country's primary venue for contemporary photography. One of its major achievements has been to establish photography within a wide viewing public, making it more popular and accessible. The gallery was the first in the country to show key names in world photography such as André Kertesz, Jaques-Henri Lartigue and Irving Penn, and has been instrumental in encouraging the inclusion of photography in the programme of leading galleries and museums. An integrated programme of exhibitions and educational events continues to present the most innovative developments in photography as well as nuturing new talent.

In 1993, both buildings in Great Newport Street underwent extensive refurbishment, designed by architect Nick England


The Photographers' Gallery has been instrumental in establishing and promoting the names of contemporary British photographers including Martin Parr and Fay Goodwin. More recently, the Gallery has introduced significant international artists working with photography, such as Rineke Dijkstra, Annelies Strba, Catherine Opie and Boris Mikhailov, to audiences in Britain. We also place strong emphasis on facilitating the production of new work by emerging artists, both from Britain and abroad, in the form of commissions. The Gallery stages exhibitions which throw new light on the history of photography through exhibitions such as Francesca Woodman, Robert Capa, Gordon Parks and Garry Winogrand. Every year, the Gallery hosts and produces Citibank Photography Prize, now recognised as one of the most important international art awards.

The Gallery is a registered educational charity (No. 262548) committed to increasing visual literacy and access to photography. The Photographers' Gallery receives some funding from London Arts, and raises additional income from the Bookshop and Print Sales Gallery. However this is insufficient to cover running costs and the development of our programme, so we rely on the generosity of individuals, companies, trusts and foundations to enable us to continue to develop our innovative programme of exhibitions and education projects.
