The National Gallery is one of the most visited and best loved art galleries in the world. The Gallery is home to some of world’s greatest artwork and provides a truly impressive backdrop to any event.

It is a beautiful and extraordinarily varied collection, including many famous works: Van Gogh's Sunflowers, Monet's The Water-Lily Pond, JMW Turner's The Fighting Temeraire to name but a few. Located within the heart of central London, where better to entertain your guests than Trafalgar Square?

The National Gallery has a variety of event spaces ranging from picture galleries to modern conference facilities in the Sainsbury Wing. The Gallery can be transformed to accommodate a range of events from a grand dinner to an intimate supper party, a stylish canapé reception, to a key annual conference.
