Te Uru is part of Lopdell Precinct, which also incorporates Lopdell House next door and the Treasure House behind (now used for wardrobe and theatre costume hire). Click here for more information about our Lopdell Precinct neighbours, and be sure to explore the village while you’re in Titirangi.

You can also enjoy the views from the roof of historic Lopdell House, or make a day of it and see McCahon House close by in French Bay, Te Toi Uku Clay Works and the Arataki Visitors Centre nearby in Oratia, Scenic Drive.


Free one hour parking is available directly outside the gallery entrance on Titirangi Road. All day free parking is accessible off South Titirangi Road, behind the gallery, although you will need to use stairs to get to the front entrance.
