The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of eminent personalities in British history from the Tudors to the present day, making it a must for lovers of art. Founded in 1856, the collection on display is among the most comprehensive in the world and no restrictions are placed on the mediums used. There are traditional oil paintings and watercolors, as well as drawings, miniatures, sculptures, silhouettes, caricatures and photographs. Admission is free, but certain exhibitions may be charged.
Geopend in 2000, deze galerij heeft industrie insiders, kunstliefhebbers en toeristen verbaast en kent weinig tegenstanders. Het museum, gelegen tussen de vaalbruine betonblokken van Bankside, heeft weinig van haar oorspronkelijke kenmerken, maar werd gebruikt als een energiecentrale in 1950's. Binnenin zijn er veel innovatieve en aandacht pakkende werken, met een variatie van 1900 tot heden, van de belangrijkste kunstenaars van de eeuw tot stijgende sterren. Entree is gratis, maar een donatie wordt op prijs gesteld.
