First of all, National Gallery London is a grand place to see grand art. There’s no excuse you’d skip this attraction that is visited by thousands of art lovers around the world. Inside, you’ll find the world’s art masterpieces. Name the world’s most famous artists in their own discipline and they have them here. Expect to be dazzled by the works of Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Monet, Van Dyck, Titian, Michelangelo, Rafael, Caravaggio, Diego Velasquez, Leonardo Da Vinci, and many more.
And the best thing about all these? The National Gallery is free for all! However, no one can snap a photo of any thing inside. Sorry, but no art-related Instagram posts while inside. 😀
At the National Gallery London, you can see over 2,300 works of art.
Inside, there are hundreds of portraits of historical figures and royal majesties.
It’s just too bad that you can’t take any photos here. Right now, the only painting I could vividly remember is that of Samson and Delilah. 😀
The gallery is huge – and if you’re in a rush to see many things in a short time, you won’t remember a thing.
In front of the gallery is the Trafalgar Square owned by the Queen in Right of the Crown.
The Square itself is bustling with a lot activities.
There are buskers of all sorts and handicraft artists selling their wares.
The National Gallery opens at 10 in the morning and closes at 6 in the evening. But, on Friday, it closes at 9.
