"National Gallery" The National Gallery Tip by Sjalen

The National Gallery, London: 132 reviews and 183 photos


National Gallery (and National Portrait Gallery just around the corner) is a great place for a rainy afternoon if you are the slightest interested in paintings. The portrait gallery houses paintings of famous people whilst the gallery itself has treasures such as van Gogh's "Sunflowers" and da Vinci's "Virgin of the Rocks" apart from several works by Turner, Constable and other British painters, along with works by Rubens, Canaletto and Cezanne and so on. Best of all is that entrance is free!

Address: Trafalgar Square, WC2
Directions: Charing Cross or Leicester Square tubes. Impossible to miss with its dome in the square.
