National Gallery: Guided Tours & Talks - FREE - ★★★★★


The National Gallery is one of the big ten for tourists and an oasis for locals. There's nothing nicer than to stop in the National Gallery on a gloomy day and soak up a bit of culture. In the summer, we tend to leave it to the tourists, but there are some great free lectures that can lure us in and always repay the investment on time that could have been spent in the sun. The Lunch Time talks are terrific introductions to exhibitions or interesting looks at specific  artists or paintings. The Ten Minute talks offer a quick insight into  a particular work. The free tours will make sure you get the most from your visit.
