National Gallery

The National Gallery is London's premier art collection, and it's possible to lose hours perusing the paintings and sculptures, which date back to the 13th century. Situated on bustling Trafalgar Square, in the grand William Wilkins building, it welcomes over 4 million visitors a year, and best of all its free of charge (although donations are gratefully accepted), so you can visit as often and for however long you would like to.

 

The National Gallery was first established in 1824 in a town house in Pall Mall, which wasn't best suited as a gallery, as it was described as 'dingy and dull' by those who came to visit. As the collection grew, the building the 2,300 strong collections of paintings as it stands today was moved to the William Wilkins designed building in 1840, a decidedly more suitable space, with ornate interiors and plenty of wall space to hang the art properly. The Sainsbury Wing is a modern addition to the gallery, a compromise of the debate about whether to modernise the traditional building or restore it, so the Sainsbury wing is less ornate than the rest of the building, but holds some of the most fascinating and earliest pictures in the collection.

 

The gallery holds pieces by many of the world's most renowned artists, Albrecht Durer, Il Duccio, Titian, Johannes Vermeer, Titian, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo Da Vinci, Claude Monet, Paul Cezanne and Vincent Van Gogh all grace its walls, which accounts for its ongoing popularity. Some of the most famous and valuable paintings in the world are held here, including Titian's Diana and Acteon, Leonardo Da Vinci's The Virgin on the Rocks, Hans Holbein the Younger's The Ambassadors (which has a fascinating anamorphic memento mori painted across the bottom edge) and Vincent Van Gogh's Sunflowers.

 

The Gallery also holds events for all age groups and talks and has an annual programme of seasonal exhibitions, which have included one of the most popular exhibitions in recent British history of Leonardo Da Vinci's works, many of which hadn't been seen in the UK before.

 

If you have even a passing interest in art, the National Gallery should be top of your sight seeing list. There is also a fantastic gift shop, cafe and Espresso Bar in the museum to make your day out complete. There are plenty of hotels located close to the Gallery and other main attractions in London, such as The Royal Trafalgar, which offers modern accommodations in a surprisingly quiet part of the square, and The Radisson Edwardian in Leicester Square, which offers funky modern furnishings. The Best Western Premier Shaftesbury Piccadilly offers affordable rates for travellers who want to stay close to the center of the city on a budget and Le Meridien in Piccadilly offers chic, design-led rooms for the more discerning guest.
