This is a wonderful place to while away a couple of hours. The subjects range from royalty to sportspersons, film stars, engineers, inventors, the list goes on; and there are photographic portraits as well as paintings. Unusually for such places, there is no objection to taking non-flash photos.
The gallery features a large number of portraits of people, from ancient monarchs and civilians to the presidents of modern and modern countries, as well as portraits of experts and great men from all fields of the world.
London is also the capital of art! All national museums are free to the public! The children were brought up by art and it was really nice! Envy them for their resources!
Personally, the paintings are good, after all, European, really great! And the British National Pavilion, the things inside will be very good, the opportunity to like painting friends not to miss a good place!
Exactly what is says it is. See the great and the good, the modern and historical and if they haven't been painted by someone trying to make a name for themselves they even look like who they are! It s a win win!
The Portrait Gallery is a neat spot to spend a few hours. It's free, so there's no risk in it, and it's conveniently located around the corner from Trafalgar Square. Here you will find the official portraits of many famous Britons from centuries past that you typically see in the history books. You'll also find many an intriguing image of celebrities and common folk.
Free entry. A lot of great stuff from different periods. Some of the parts cost money.
Best galleries for art and photography exhibitions. Next to the Trafalgar Square and Garrick Theatre at Charing's Cross. It is free for visitors due to the national funding so do catch the new exhibit when in town.
One of my favourite galleries in London. You get to appreciate the art and the history of the UK and it's the perfect size so not as exhausting as some of the other galleries in London. Also has an amazing coffee shop/restaurant with rooftop views.
