Edward Alleyn, a successful Shakespearean actor, bought the manor in 1605 and founded the "College of God's Gift" to provide education for "12 poor scholars" and almshouses for "6 poor brethren and 6 poor sisters." The Alleyn Foundation, reconstituted in 1857 and again in 1882, now comprises three schools: Dulwich College, Alleyn's School, and James Allen's Girls' School.
The main buildings of Dulwich College were built in 1866-70 to designs of Charles Barry (the younger) - who also built the Houses of Parliament.
Dulwich Picture Gallery houses one of the world's most important collections of European old master paintings of the 1600s and 1700s. The collection is also one of the oldest in Great Britain, substantially put together in the years (phone number hidden).
The paintings are housed in the first purpose-built art gallery in England, designed by Sir John Soane. Soane's building is as famous as the collection it so perfectly displays.
