What to expect at Official National Gallery Highlights Tour

700 years of art in 60 minutes. Lovely stuff.

Michelangelo. Leonardo. Donatello. Raphael. Yup, we’re thinking of the Ninja Turtles too. But even if you’re not the arty type, the Official National Gallery Highlights Tour is definitely worth a look.

You’ll meet a Gallery-approved Blue Badge Guide (basically, an expert). They’ll take you through rooms packed with masterpieces, sharing the stories behind the artwork. Highlights include The Virgin of the Rocks by Leonardo Da Vinci, The Hay Wain by John Constable, and Van Gogh’s Sunflowers (our fave).

If you prefer things that are a bit more modern, there’s some pretty funky stuff by Pablo Picasso (feel free to ask if they’ve framed it the right way up) and Andy Warhol (you know: the day-glo Marilyn Monroe and Campbell’s soup cans guy).

Sound like your cup of tea? You may as well go ahead and buy some Official National Gallery Highlights Tour tickets then.

After an hour of soaking it all in, you’ll head off with tons of creative inspo (or lots of pub-quiz knowledge at least). What’s not to love?

Bang in the middle of London (Trafalgar Square), The National Gallery is a real treasure chest. And this official tour is a brilliant way of getting to know its best bits.
