National Gallery

Ah, the world-famous National Gallery, home to one of the greatest collections of Western European painting in the world, and completely free to the public. This is the place to come if you’ve ever wanted to see Velázquez’s Rokeby Venus in the flesh, or simply stand for hours before Van Gogh’s hypnotic Sunflowers. Over 2,300 works chart a history of mankind’s aesthetic prowess, from the medieval period to the early 20th century: strolling around the galleries you’ll come face to face with work by Botticelli, Leonardo, Turner and Monet. The temporary exhibitions, meanwhile, are routinely spectacular: such is the Gallery’s might, that with a flick of the wrist, it can summon masterpieces from all corners of the globe.
