Join us for this 2 hour tour of the National Gallery in London. The gallery is home to more than 2300 pieces of Western European art. We understand that it can be intimidating to walk through a gallery not knowing where to go, or which paintings you might enjoy. Our blue badge guide will happily show you around selecting the highlights of the collection, and drawing your attention to the minor details that may easily be overlooked. If you have children in your party, we’re sure they will enjoy a quiz/hunt for various objects in the paintings and the chance to win a prize at the end!
About This Deal
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN England
The tour starts in the Sainsbury wing, the newest addition to the gallery, where we have the oldest paintings by some of the most famous early European artists. One of the oldest paintings, dates back to 13th Century. Compare it with a piece by da Vinci or Botticelli, how did the art evolve during that period?
Once we are finished in the Sainsbury wing, we move to the main building. The gallery is more or less organised in chronological order, so we pick up where we left off.
Paintings by Raphael, Titian or Holbein are waiting for us, before we move on to see the Dutch master Rembrandt. Two of his self portraits are on display, whilst they are close in location, they depict the change in his appearance over 3 decades.
Now heading towards more recent paintings, several rooms where you are surrounded by masterpieces by Monet, Van Gogh and more. Yes, we do have a version of the Sunflowers by Van Gogh, but that’s not the only painting by this amazing artist. Listen to his fascinating life stories whilst admiring his talent.
Your children will appreciate one particular painting called “Surprised!” What kind of animal can you see creeping through the painting?
We finish the tour at the main corridor of the gallery, where you have the chance to browse the gift shop or unwind with a cup of tea.
Please keep in mind, that the gallery changes the order of the paintings, loans paintings for exhibitions, as well as restores them. The tour will be adapted to make the most of the pieces on offer on that particular day.
