“Don't miss this fabulous gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Amidst the giants of the National Gallery, the Tate(s), and the huge museum collections that London offers, you might not have heard of the Courtauld. About a half-mile up the strand from Trafalgar Square, set in grand rooms with a history of their own, this collection includes some beautiful pre- and post-Impressionist works that you can view in a quiet, unhurried environment. Because it is a small collection, and relatively unknown compared to it's bigger competitors, you can sit on a bench in front of a Gauguin nude or stand undisturbed for half an hour before Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergère. It's like being invited to someone's home, where you can close to the art and live with it for awhile. Such a find. You'll be glad you went. (And the cafe on the lower level offers decent cappuccino and pastries, too.)

“Not to be missed by any Art lover.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Checkout and follow "The Courtauld Gallery" Facebook page it has lots of info of future exhibitions.
Somerset House will most probably have something interesting while you visit, in winter from November it has the most beautiful Ice Skating Rink.

“Van Gogh is here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

Good idea to visit in order to see paintings and portraits of famous artists like Van Gogh or Monet but the rest of the buildings are also worth to visit in order to explore the long palace that stretches along the embankment.

“I do not know how I missed this for 50 years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

A friend with a guide book recommended this jewel. The impressionist collection is excellent. There is a late Renoir from a time when he sought to reintroduce line and structure, a development of which I had previously been unaware. The Cezanne collection is also quite extensive.
