I thoroughly enjoyed walking through the galleries and getting some face time with some of history's greats. It was fun comparing the gowns worn by the various queens with the fantastic reproductions made for historic films. I made a special trip to see Charles Darwin and thank him for his courage and wisdom. Maybe there's someone there you'd like to chat with? Entry is free.

I thought this would be a not-too-boring way to kill an hour before meeting a friend, but it turned into a really special experience. Each portrait is intelligently accompanied by a brief biographical note, which brought the humanity of the long-dead and mostly forgotten subjects to life. A visit here can easily become a meditation on the ephemeral, if vivid, nature of our brief existence.

The museum I visit most often. Surely one of the best places to visit in London - situated right on Trafalgar Square, it is completely free to get in. An incredible collection of art - head to the earliest stuff and work your way through the centuries to the Twentieth Century, ending with Van Gogh's Sunflowers, Cezanne, Klimt. The Leonardo Cartoon is one of the most sublime pieces of art in the world - look out for its own room tucked away at the entrance to the Renaissance section, on the right, then sit and stare at the beauty.

Situated right on the edge of the Trafalger Square The National Gallery is in a very lively section of the city. Inside things are a bit more subdued but with another massive building packed with treasures to explore there is plenty to see! Entrance is by donation only so even if you are not a huge art fan it's a great place to stop in and see artworks by some of histories most famous artists.

The National Gallery is located right by Trafalgar Square. In addition to having over 2,300 old-school European style paintings, it's open free to the public.Recommended for:Budget Travelers

The best museum in London, with amazing medieval triptychs and a good selection of Flemish Masters, including the iconic Arnolfini Marriage by Jan Van Eyck. Lot of Leonardo here, too. Great bookstore...the one downstairs is bigger.

Beautiful gallery with a wonderful array of works! Including that of Van Gough! I went in only because I had time to kill, but I was really thankful that I did. It is a thoroughly well organised gallery with very relevant and interesting information to accompany each painting.
