About Us

Knowledgeable custodians are on hand in the Gallery to  answer your questions and we have an accessible library and archive. You can just drop in on your visit to Cookham, no booking is required, we also cater for groups, but the Gallery is quite small and so larger groups may need to split up. There are also lots of tea rooms, pubs and restaurants close by. There is parking in the High Street and there is a small car park round the corner from the Gallery, there is no charge for this.

Group bookings can be arranged for parties of between 10 and 40 people for a gallery talk and a guided walk. The walk takes in many parts of the village where Spencer set his paintings.  For group bookings please email . 

The Gallery has disabled access and a lift up to the first floor, so there is no problem for wheelchairs. There is parking on the High Street with a few disabled slots. If you would like assistance with your visit please contact us  You can download a .pdf of the Disabled Access facilities that we have for visitors. A carer or supporter for a disabled person can visit the Gallery free of charge. 

There is also a self-guided walk pamphlet available to buy at the gallery.
