National Gallery London Tour

The National Gallery is the fourth most visited Museum in the world and one of the most comprehensive collections of painting on earth. Sometimes that can seem a little overwhelming, so let us guide you through the major names, works, and styles of 800 years of Western Art.

National Gallery London Tours

We’ll see reverent medieval work covered in gold leaf, the genius of the Renaissance, how art was a weapon during The Reformation, the calmness of rococo, how it was blown out of its complacency by revolution and romance and end with impressionism and the march to modern art.

Whether you’re an art expert or a complete novice our walk through the gallery will keep you entertained and gripped by the stories these incredible paintings have to tell.

Some of the masterpieces we cover:

  • Medieval Art, Masaccio, Van Eyck, Dürer, Da Vinci, Botticelli, Raphael, Titian, Holbein the Younger, Rubens, Rembrandt, Velázquez, Caravaggio, Canaletto, Turner, Constable, Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Cézanne.

Due to loans, cleaning and temporary exhibitions works may be added or removed during your visit.
