How do i centre gallery list items ?

Hi, I have finished the How To Make A Website and have am now looking to edit the CSS.

Since the course ended, I have updated the html to only have four images while keeping the existing css intact.

I have noticed though that gallery list items are off entered to the left hand side. I take it this is because of the li {float:left;} ?

How do i make these 4 list items sit centre in the screen while keeping it intact to have two items per row?

Below is my css + html:

HTML:

        <ul id=gallery>
          <li>
            <a href="img/tour.jpg">
              <img src="img/tour.jpg" alt="">
              <p>Up Coming Show</p>
            </a>  
          </li>
          <li>
            <a href="img/perform.jpg">
              <img src="img/perform.jpg" alt="">
              <p>Music</p>
            </a>  
          </li>
          <li>
            <a href="img/vidshoot.jpg">
              <img src="img/vidshoot.jpg" alt="">
              <p>Videos</p>
            </a>  
          </li>
          <li>
            <a href="img/merch.jpg">
              <img src="img/merch.jpg" alt="">
              <p>Merch</p>
            </a>  
          </li>
        </ul>
      </section>```


CSS:
#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 1%;
  padding: 1%;
  background-color: #d9d9d9;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

#gallery li a p {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 3%;
  font-size: 0.75em;
  color: #000;
}



Thanks in advance!
