This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN England

We'll meet at the gallery where I'll begin by giving a brief overview of its history before outlining the tour which will invariably include some Greek Mythology, fabulous women and a bottom or two. The gallery houses an extraordinary collection of western art to around 1900, with numerous well known works by the old Masters so we’ll enjoy paintings by Titian, Velasquez and Cezanne to name but a few. Each tour will last an hour and a half and will weave together scandalous tales about artists, narratives, and glimpses behind the canvas. Nothing is scripted so you'll always have a unique experience and of course I'll try to answer any questions that arise from the tour, or even the ones that have long been puzzling you but you never dared ask! The aim is to entertain as well as inform so everything is accessible, lighthearted and fun - I'll look forward to meeting you to share my passion for art.

Lynne is a wonderful, modern, humourous and charming art historian. If you think an art tour would be dry and boring, think again. Lynne picks out the fun facts and interesting details that bring the pictures to life. She is so knowledgeable and her love...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of the National Gallery with Lynne. She is extremely knowledgeable, passionate about her subject and certainly brings the paintings to life. They say every picture tells a story and that is certainly true when you visit with Lynne! She is...More

I found Lynne extremely knowledgeable and fun. How many times have I been to the National Portrait gallery and had very limited knowledge on what I’m looking at. Lynne chose some really interesting pieces, it was a wonderfully interesting tour and made everything come to...More
