Spend the day admiring over 700 years’ worth of world-renowned European art with our guided tour of the National Gallery. Located in Trafalgar Square, the Gallery is open all year round and boasts an impressive collection of 2,600 paintings from the likes of Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Claude Monet.

With our Gallery-approved Blue Badge Guides, you will explore the history and stories of the collections, masterpiece by masterpiece. Among the greatest is Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’ — one of his most famous paintings. Did you know that there are five different versions of this painting, and all located in different museums around the world? 

The Gallery is also home to Caravaggio’s ‘The Supper at Emmaus’ which depicts the moment Jesus’ disciples realise they are in the presence of the resurrected Christ. Other masterpieces include Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘The Virgin of the Rocks’ and ‘Bathers at Asnières’ by George Seurat.

Available during the day, and all year round, our expert-led tour lasts approximately one hour with the opportunity to enjoy the collection in your own time after the tour.
