“Based in Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery is one of the most popular Art Galleries in the city. Dating back to 1824, the gallery is home to a massive collection of 2300 paintings, some of which are as old as the 13th century. Whether you’re looking for the works of Turner, Holben or Van Gogh, you’ll find some recognisable classics dotted around the gallery. One item of note about the national gallery is in the fact that it was not taken from an existing collection from royalty or nobility but was instead stemming from a collection of 38 paintings which were bought from John Julius Angerstein, a patron of the arts in the 19th century.”
