I never miss an opportunity to visit the National Gallery. Recently visited and thought how wonderfully presented all of it was. Staff are always courteous and some have been pleasant and helpful where necessary. I always try to visit mid week to avoid the crowds, though it can still be very busy. Beautiful building.

Hundreds of years of art in dozens of rooms. All our grandchildren loved it, The cafe in the place served very good lunches.

We were blown away by our visit - staff all very professional and courteous - coffee shop and shop both great and lovely clean toilets. But those were just the basics. The museum and galleries and the simply magnificent artworks were worth a thousand visits and we can’t wait to go back!

Monet is my favourite artist so couldn't miss seeing this exhibition. There were many paintings I had never seen before & was amazed by how close you could get to them although they are better viewed from a distance. Would have liked there to have been more paintings as it seemed expensive for 90 minutes of viewing slowly. Although I could spend all day looking at Monet paintings.
Found a few more around the Gallery as well as Van Gogh's Sunflowers which I wasn't aware this painting was here.
The building in itself is beautiful to look at. I would advise keeping track of where you are as it is easy to walk from one gallery to another and before you know it you've lost your bearings!

We could have spent a whole day here, although we only had about 3 hours total. I would have rated a 5 for the art, but the audioguide was confusing, and, we had a very rude waiter at the restaurant in the gallery.
