What You'll Do
  • Learn about the painters behind the painters
  • Marvel at the art
  • Visit the National Gallery
Overview
Instead of wandering the National Gallery aimlessly, let guides immerse you in the stories and history behind some of the world’s most famous artists. This 2.5 hour guided tour will explore the museum’s best work.
What to Expect
You’ve heard of Van Gogh and da Vinci, but what do you really know about them? Learn about the painters behind the paintings as you browse your favorite works by masters like Botticelli, Monet, Rembrandt, and Vermeer. If none of those names mean anything to you, that will all change by the end of the tour.

The National Gallery houses a collection of paintings from the 1300s onwards, so there is no shortage of choice. View da Vinci’s “The Virgin of the Rocks” before fast-forwarding to Seurat’s “Bathers at Asnières” to witness the changing styles over the centuries. During this semi-private tour, you’ll be armed with the information and history that you’ll need to appreciate the 2300 paintings on display at one of the world’s most visited museums.

Highlights Generally Include:
(if artwork is not on loan or being restored etc.) A Young Woman standing at a Virginal, Sunflowers, The Madonna of the Pinks ('La Madonna dei Garofani’), The Toilet of Venus ('The Rokeby Venus’), The Virgin of the Rocks from Panels from the S.
