This beautiful little gallery is always a must visit. It has a place in my heart. So many lovely works of art that you will recognize, enjoy and appreciate. Easy to find, walk a few blocks east of Trafalgar Square.
So glad I managed to see the collection before the gallery closed for renovation works for a couple of years. As my husband booked the tickets and I knew nothing about the artworks at this gallery, I was pleasantly surprised when we visited to see...More
It is a brilliant gallery with a focus on impressionists and post-impressionists. It is small but all the paintings are some of the most important ones, e.g. A Bar at the Folies-Bergère by Manet. A very nice cafe on the ground floor. Nowhere near as...More

I just happened upon this museum as I was walking by Somerset House and decided to stop in only 30 minutes before it closed. I was amazed at the number and the quality of the art there, especially the Impressionist paintings. If you like Impressionists,...More
This gallery has some beautiful Cezannes, Renoirs, Degas, one of my favourite Modigliannis amongst a whole lot more beautiful paintings. I was fortunate enough to visit it last week just before it closed for a revamp which will take some time to complete. When it...More
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to
these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.

£8 per adult, less for seniors and children. Check if there are any offers on line etc we were using British Rail to and from London and you can get 2 for 1 on entry but you need to apply in advance and download a voucher.
