"National Gallery" The National Gallery Tip by WorldRunner100

The National Gallery, London: 131 reviews and 182 photos

The National Gallery is pretty decent. Its free (thought they ask for a donation), as are the audiotours. I wouldn't say it is worth a whole lot of time. Maybe I'm spoiled from having been to some of the famous art museums in France and Italy, but there are a lot of other places in London that I would rather visit. If you have a lot of time its worth a look. And if you know of a couple paintings you really want to see, you can just go and find them, then leave. I've posted some photos and tips from my time in London on my travel blog, the National Gallery part is at the end of this post:
