As a warning I personally am not a good judge of art, I generally enjoy landscape work. The art work in the national gallery are more so portraits and religious pieces (as was the art style in the era). The gallery itself is gorgeous and the layout intuitive and fairly easy to navigate. I do regret not getting the audio tour, reading that much text can be tiring and I found myself skipping over the text and just looking at the paintings that caught my eye. However there is a lot to learn and I feel the audio tour would have really augmented the experience, so I do recommend it. Especially if you are alone.
A superb collection of European paintings although the exhibition spaces are crowded and airless ( after all the fuss caused by the extension, you might think they would get that right!). Two galleries (34/35)of 18th century British Art, well worth seeing. A really great institution founded on the idea of giving the public free access to paintings.
A nice portrait gallery to visit, with many portraits of historic people. I enjoyed seeing portraits of the many important British scientists. I was surprised to find a portrait of George Washington and had a giggle at the description on the placard. Like the other national museums there is no fee, only an appeal for a donation.
Classical art gallery in the centre of London, Trafalgar Square. Free and huge collection of masterpieces, mostly classical art, but there are also famous paintings by Van Gogh and others. Recommended. There is also nicely decorated cafe inside. But the gallery is huge and one needs a lot of time to see most of it. There is nice restaurant inside. Great location.
A Masterpiece! Incredible collection of beautiful art. It would be easy to spend the whole day there. Vermeer, Caravaggio, Turner, Monet, Van Gogh, Rembrandt,Titian & Rubens- all for free! Spacious galleries & pleasant cafe- a simply amazing place to spend an afternoon.....
