The National Gallery is renowned for its special events and exhibitions and this was no exception. A good range of Turner's from his early day to his later life and well worth the effort of coming from Sydney.

The National Gallery is always worth a visit and this time for the Turner they had cleverly set up time slots so crowds could be managed well. Just my personal taste but this exhibition did not appeal as much as the previous Truner.
