    This must-see museum houses over 160,000 portraits of famous Brits (think Mick Jagger, Queen Victoria) dating back to the 16th century. It also is home to a trove of Cecil Beaton images.

    Most of the gallery exhibits are available for a suggested £1 donation, enough to keep you busy for at least a couple of hours. Great way to learn some of the history you won't find in the books.

    Came here for Marc Quinn's Blood Head. Instant wow-factor! And for the Tudor portraits exhibition, which unfortunately was on loan in Paris when I went. Rest of the collection is great.

    One of the most important galleries in London, it's a must if you are already at trafalgar, it's right behind the national gallery. Tons of paintings and sculptures from different eras.

    Huge collection of portraits of those who have made Britain the great country it is. Portraits range from playwrights to pop stars and kings to psychologists. Entrance is free.

    Lovely selection of portraits, but even more astounding than the famous collections are the new artists. Worth a trip (and a tip!)

    Most classical museum in London! If you don't like Renaissance or 1800's paintings, I suggest staying in the Van Gogh and "modern" wing. It should be a 30 minut visit

    The ultimate gallery for portraits of current and historic people. Beautifully arranged and with a nice atmosphere. Look out for the special evening events too!

    This is an excellent gallery in the centre of London. Perfect for a 15-30 minute visit. I fully recommend popping in to see the latest additions.

    The portrait gallery is great, but is often missed by those who only visit the national gallery next door. Well laid out chronologically, and definitely worth a visit.

    Here, you will see amazing portraits (drawings, paintings, photos, sculptures, etc.) of notable figures of the country's history like those of Shakespeare, Henry VII, and the band Blur. Opens 10 am.

    It's not as famous as its generalist neighbour, but it's well worth a visit in its own right. Keep an eye out for temporary exhibitions, too, although not all of them are worth the money.

    By recommendation i started with Van Gogh, following the turns into more biblical, ornate and tactile pieces i.e. Carlo Crivelli << i like! The space is HUGE, so make u sit and rest between trips, :)

    An amazingly diverse collection that looks at (predominately British) portraiture from all angles and time ages.

    I entered here with not too much enthusiasm and I exited completely enchanted. I love this museum, you can learn a lot history here even if you don't want you. Worst: you can't take pics :(

    It's free. Do one section then leave. Come back another day for more. This gallery works excellently for discrete visits.

    You must visit it. With 195.000 portraits, it's one of the most attractive galleries in the UK. I'm sure you'll be surprised!

    Great & highly varied collection, visit room 24 on the first floor to see pairs of paintings hung at angles allowing them to be viewed together (innovative & effective)

    If you have to choose between the National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery, go to the National Gallery. Much more impressive and diverse.

    The gallery itself is very nice, but the restaurant on the third floor is awful! 30f for the set of miserable sweets for person? 25minutes of whiting for some more water?? Sights in window are great

    Temporary exhibitions are a hit or miss. I recommend researching a bit before spending 15£ on a ticket. Permanent collection is free.

    The gallery was founded by an act of Parliament in 1856 and was housed at a number of locations until its present home. One of the most famous portraits is the Younger of Henry VIII by Hans Holbein
