"The National Portrait..." National Portrait Gallery Tip by londonbabe
National Portrait Gallery, London: 39 reviews and 55 photos
The National Portrait Gallery.
No, not the National Gallery but the NPG, just round the corner on Trafalgar Square. (Picture is Mary, Queen of Scots)
You might think it a bit dull, to have a gallery dedicated to portraiture. Not so. Apart from housing a fascinating collection of famous men and women (and yes, a couple of nice ones of Princess Di), it also hosts the BP Portrait competition, an anuual event which showcases the best young artisitic talent.
The restaurant on the top floor has great views and a reasonable wine list.
