Museums & Galleries
National Portrait Gallery
St Martin's Place
Portraits in all mediums, from oil and watercolour to sculpture and drawings depict famous and infamous British men and women from the Tudors to the present day. Lectures and tours are held, and holiday programmes are arranged for children. Major development work undertaken for the millennium has created a Tudor Gallery displaying the earliest works in the collection and a Balcony Gallery for portraits from the 1960s-1980s. There is also a state of the art lecture theatre, an IT Gallery and a roof top restaurant with stunning views.
