我哋嘅倫敦一日遊終點站就係呢度咁作為一個博物館呢,佢嘅展品同埋資訊嘅詳細程度都係非常豐富嘅,而且無論係出面定係入面都非常之靚,十足十係一個古蹟咁樣????????????不過可惜路線編排係非常之差,而家去到邊都好多人,再加上因為好大,所以小朋友好容易行到冇耐性

An amazing gallery. There were many well-known paintings, such as Sunflowers by Van Gogh, but there was also a wide variety of lesser known but just as beautiful paintings. The building itself was beautiful as well. And it’s free as well, so you get to visit centuries worth of art history without spending a dime. Definitely worth a visit if it’s your first visit to London.

Need to plan ahead the best route otherwise keep circulating in a maze. A very well explanatory nature of what art and its artist trying to tell us what has happening in the past. Recommended to get the £10 book to facilitate the tour. Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended Not sure … More

The museum has evolved since I went last back in the 70's from 3 floors now to 5 floors. The 1st WW is in the basement is a must to see. The paintings and truly magnificent plus the dioramas. Pity there was not much on the RAF involved in the Burma campain. There are excellent shops which are well positioned and priced.

Trafalgar Square, a bustling civic hub in the heart of London, radiates with cultural vibrancy and historic significance. Anchored by Nelson's Column and surrounded by iconic landmarks, it's a dynamic public space that hosts events and commemorates national heroes. Trafalgar Square is the lively centerpiece of the city, embodying the spirit of London.

Real great experience. I was in the gallery 4 days in a row. Best day was friday with guided tours and a drawing event. Only improvement would be an audio guide app. The smartify won't read for you. So it is read in App, look at picture, read in App and so on. Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended Yes … More

Un luogo magico per ammirare l'arteIn alcune sale sembrava di essere agli Uffizi, tanti sono i capolavori del Rinascimento italiano.Utile la prenotazione per saltare i tempi di attesa, pur essendo l'ingresso gratuitoMaestosa la collocazione a Trafalgar Square, che si apprezza soprattutto nel momento dell'uscita
