The National Gallery has established itself as an art lover's dream destination and a major tourist attraction. Located in the heart of central London at Trafalgar Square, the gallery displays some of the best European artworks in the world. The comprehensive collection covers remarkable art periods such as Gothic Art, Italian Renaissance, Baroque, French Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism. Make your visit to the gallery more memorable with a guided tour, wherein a well-informed guide will add more meaning to your viewing experience. They will engage you with compelling backstories of the Battle of San Romano by Paolo Uccello, The Entombment by Michelangelo, Virgin of the Rocks by Leonardo da Vinci, The Supper at Emmaus by Caravaggio, and Madonna of the Pinks by Raphael.

As you examine the paintings, you cannot help but feel enchanted by the French Impressionist artist Claude Monet's Irises. Also lining the museum's walls are post-impressionist artworks like Bathers by Paul Cézanne and Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh. Moreover, the National Gallery heavily features artworks by Dutch and Flemish artists. Visitors will be equipped with a Vox headset throughout the tour so that they do not miss out on any important information from their guide and get the most out of their tour. The guide-led tour will come to an end after approximately one hour. Post that, you are free to explore the gallery on your own.
