Galleries in London
London's home to some of the finest art galleries in the world. The National Gallery is essential visiting. Obvious, but we'd also recommend Tate Britain for British art and Tate Modern for modern art. Check the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) website, too, to see if they're running an exhibition you like.

The National Gallery
