"National Portrait Gallery" National Portrait Gallery Tip by Gypsystravels

National Portrait Gallery, London: 39 reviews and 55 photos


This is a really fantastic museum as it recounts Britain?s development through portraits and also puts faces to those names of famous individuals of history.

It had previously only displayed portraits of mainly those individuals already deceased but that changed in 1969 and now you can see portraits of individuals who are still alive as well.

A great way to catch up on your history listen!
