National Gallery

The National Gallery houses one of the greatest collections of Western European paintings in the world from the 13th to the 19th centuries.

It is a beautiful and extraordinarily varied collection, containing many famous works. No other collection better tells the story of Western European painting. 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.

The hire charge of the Gallery’s spaces includes cloakroom and security staff and a dedicated Event Manager. Every event is bespoke and tailored to your needs and the Events Team are dedicated to guiding you every step of the way to ensure that your event is a complete success.

The Gallery can either be divided in to four separate event spaces or these can be used in conjunction with each other to give an overall capacity of over 800 guests.
