National Gallery

The National Gallery is not only the centrepiece of classical Western art in the UK, but it is widely recognised for a collection that few galleries in the world are able to surpass. Opened in 1824, it features a collection of some of the finest paintings ever committed to canvas, with pieces ranging from the mid-13th century through to 1900.

Become transfixed by Turner’s ‘The Fighting Temeraire’ or gaze in wonder at Vincent van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’. Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘The Virgin of the Rocks’ also reveals its wonders to the millions who pass through each and every year. This sumptuous collection of art may be small in comparison to some of the larger varieties found in mainland Europe, but the sheer magnitude of the work on show simply cannot be matched anywhere else.
