National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery of London is the first portrait gallery in the world. In 1896, the gallery moved to St. Martin's Place to connect with the National Gallery—a famous collection belonging to the public, focusing on history—the portraits that hang in the gallery were selected for the person's significance in British history, not the painter. The ground floor, first floor, and second floor display collections and special exhibitions; the other floors house a theatre, studio, bookshop and restaurant, making your visit to the National Portrait Gallery of London a memorable one indeed.

  • Go to the Late Shift event held every Thursday and Friday to socialise and explore the Gallery after hours whilst enjoying live music, DJs, workshops, lectures, and drawing sessions.
  • Check the London’s National Portrait Gallery schedule for family workshops and children events that make British History an interactive experience.
  • Sit at a table on the rooftop restaurant and bar of National Portrait Gallery; one of London’s most sought after dining areas, possessing awe-inspiring views above the city.

A popular and free public gallery, the National Portrait Gallery is easy to spot while walking down Charing Cross Road to St. Martin's Place. Leicester Square station is about 200metres from the Gallery if you’re rumbling along using the London Underground. If you’re over-ground, the majority of double-decker buses allow for sightseeing on the journey to your destination. Three lines depart from Trafalgar Square or Charing Cross, and any can drop you off close to the National Portrait Gallery. You might take a taxi or Dial-A-Ride since no parking facilities are at the Gallery for a rental car. The gallery is also a perfect stop if you’ve been touring the city on foot.
