The Pump House Gallery occupies a Grade II listed building next to the Boating Lake in Battersea Park. It shows changing exhibitions of modern and conemporary art. Entrance to the gallery is free, though the gallery is closed on Monday, Tuesday and during exhibition installation.
The Pump House was built in 1861 to provide water for the lakes and other water features in the park. It became derelict and was taken over by Wandsworth Borough Council in 1986. It was then rennovated with the aid of a £400,000 grant from English Heritage and today contains a gallery, park information centre and a shop.
