Private Guided Museum Tour: The National Gallery of London

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Greet your private guide at the impressive front entrance of London’s National Gallery, an iconic cultural institution located in Trafalgar Square. Discuss with your guide the paintings that interest you and then embark on a personalized tour of the museum.

    While listening to contextual commentary, marvel at masterpieces by Botticelli, Monet and Rembrandt, and see paintings that range from the 14th-century to the 1900s. Discover iconic works such as Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’ and admire lesser-known oeuvres such as ‘The Arnolfini Portrait’ by Jane van Eyck.

    When your tour draws to a conclusion, receive recommendations on how to tackle the National Gallery’s 2,300-strong collection and continue exploring independently.
