  • The national art gallery is one of the free amazing things to do in London. It's one of the biggest London galleries, it is located in Trafalgar Square. The gallery is accessible through a tube or London bus. This is one of the "to see" places in London for artists or aspiring artists. One of the street artists drew country flags on the ground and has people donate money by placing it on their country's flag. It was a great thing because I got to meet other people from my own country and we could see which court is more generous or have more tourists visiting London (Trafalgar Square).

  • Really nice place. There is a free event called Drop-in-Drawing (every Friday from 18:30) in which an artist gives you a task to complete. You do not need to bring any material since they are provided in the gallery. Also it is open to everyone (from beginners to accomplished artists).

  • Definitely worth coming to! I stumbled upon this museum and decided to check it out. Really well worth it with art from very famous artists from the impressionist movement all the way back to the Renaissance. Not to mention this place is free! Definitely check this gallery out because the area on Friday had free street entertainment! I saw break dancers, violinist and chalk art! Go!:) Also the national portrait museum is around the corner. Also free :)

  • Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to fully appreciate this excellent gallery! Admission is free, and anyone with any sort of appreciation for art could easily spend hours here. Add the Portrait Gallery next door, and the beautiful plaza that leads up to both... you could spend all day here and not have any regrets!

  • Has a wide variety of paintings, and the galleries are periodically updated. The placards next to the paintings give quite a bit of information about each artwork, making it possible to enjoy the gallery without additional knowledge or guides. The staff are mostly friendly and welcoming, and reasonably informed. There are comfortable seats in a number of rooms, allowing one to contemplate the art at leisure.
