The National Gallery

London has聽an abundance of museums to choose from. One I’d been wanting to visit for quite some time was The National Gallery. It certainly did not disappoint.

The National Gallery is located by the Trafalgar Square.

As almost every tourist visits the square, I don’t think there’s any excuse not to visit the museum.

I love the feel of the museum – very dignified but even then, there’s no need to dress up for a visit.

Everywhere you look there’s something that catches your eye.

Be warned – the museum is huge. It’s a good idea to have at least a couple of hours to spend there.

I adore how all the galleries are different.

There are sofas for you to take a break now and then.

The Whistlejacket, a race horse, by George Stubbs. This is one of the Top 30 paintings to see.

You might remember The Fighting Temeraire below from the Bond Skyfall.

Manet’s fashionable Parisians are always interesting to look at.

It warmed my heart to see a painting by Finnish Akseli Gallen-Kallela in the museum. This is a very typical scene of a lake in Finland.

Renoir’s water themes have always been my favourites.

Looking at the people visiting the museum is almost as fun as discovering the paintings.

Portrait of a Lady from 1618!! It just blows my mind how old some of these paintings are.

I saw a few of these study groups around. It could be interesting to join one.

If you get hungry during your visit, there are a few caf茅s for refreshments.

Have you been to the National Gallery? Which museum do you recommend I visit next time I’m in London?
