London National Gallery
Home to England’s greatest collection of paintings, the London National Gallery's pantheon-style facade looms over London’s Trafalgar Square. With a storied history dating back to 1824, it’s no wonder this is one of the most-visited art museums in the world.

The Basics
The National Gallery is a popular London attraction, with hop-on, hop-off bus tours stopping right outside. Visitors to the museum can explore independently or opt for a private tour with an art historian guide. Alternatively, you can purchase a London Pass and enjoy entrance to the National Gallery and a host of other London museums and attractions. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Entrance to the museum is free, but guided tours include a level of personalization and ensure you see all the top exhibits. 
  • Visitor facilities include restrooms, a coat check, a gift shop, a café, and a restaurant.
  • The National Gallery is wheelchair accessible—lifts and ramps are available on all floors.

How to Get There
The National Gallery is located on Trafalgar Square in Central London, an easy walk from Piccadilly Circus, Covent Garden, or the Thames riverfront. The closest tube station is Charing Cross.

When to Get There
The National Gallery is open year-round but can get crowded during peak summer months, when it’s best to arrive early and opt for a weekday visit if possible. The site is open daily from 10am to 6pm, with extended hours until 9pm on Fridays.

The Masterpieces of the National Gallery
The museum’s permanent collection includes over 2,300 paintings, dating from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. It includes pieces from iconic artists such as Monet, Van Gogh, da Vinci, Holbein, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Ruben, and Van Eyck.
