Wonderful collection of portraits that I've been wanting to see. The Tudor collection is exceptional.

This was amazing, there were so many famous pictures. The detail on some was incredible, especially the clothing, you felt almost able to touch some of the fabrics, such as fur or silk or velvet. I especially liked the Canaletto paintings, so much detail in every part of each picture. Compared to some of the rubbish today purported to be art.....just incredible

This is a fantastic free gallery for all to see in the heart of London!

With so many pieces of art to see under one roof, you could spend hours here exploring, without getting bored.

My only gripe is the lack of WiFi in the building, but it's a gallery, so what do you expect?!

Love this gallery. I go there everytime I visit London. Fantastic paintings and the atmosphere is great. I always forget the time while I'm at the National Gallery.
