“Magnificent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Many artworks displayed with a very heavy religious Christians flavor. Being non religious I cannot appreciate every piece to the maximum, but it was in any case a pleasant trip. Very educational for children

The National Gallery has an amazing collection of paintings. Since the admission is free you can make a short visit or an extended one and you always get your money's worth.

“Excellent and free!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Decided to have a cultural day in London and decided to visit the national gallery. They offer a audio tour whereby they have selected a number of portraits to listen about. They advertise this to take approximately 60 mins but you can put in different numbers to listen about other portraits as well. We ended up spending about 3 hours there. Our 13 yr old thought it was excellent as he could select portraits he wanted to learn more about. A very enjoyable afternoon and it was free!
