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.

An artistic inspiration, my favorite art gallery in London with an impressive collection of Western European paintings from the 13th to the 19th centuries. “The Ambassadors” and the “Sunflowers” are the most beloved works in-house. The gallery restaurant, and Café are great options for coffee, afternoon tea or lunch onsite.

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.

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.

We got lost trying to get there, and then proceeded to get lost within the museum as well. Stunning classical art, but we'll opt for the shock and awe campaigns waged at the Tate over classics, anyday.

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.

Admission is free and during the week this place closes at 6 pm. A must see after walking through Trafaglar Square. Amazing pieces of art that tell a variety of stories. To help the viewer understand each piece has a little note of history beside it.
