Established in 1824, the National Gallery in London houses one of the most prestigious collections of paintings in the world. Over 2300 paintings are now on display in the monumental building at Trafalgar Square. The gallery houses a collection of Western European paintings from the 13th to the 19th centuries - from altarpieces to the Impressionists - there is something for everyone.
The collection includes many famous works, such as van Eyck’s Arnolfini Portrait, Velázquez’s Rokeby Venus, Turner’s Fighting Temeraire and Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. The works are arranged in a more or less chronological order.
With easy accessibility and its central location, it is no wonder that it is one of the most visited museums in London. Start as early as possible to avoid the rush and crowds if you want to spend some quality time with your favourite paintings.
