The National Gallery loves families – here’s our guide to everything you need to know about making a visit with family

Entrances

The Pigott Education Centre

The Pigott Education Centre is a level entrance located to the rear of the National Gallery on Orange Street. The Centre has baby change facilities, accessible toilets, lifts and a cloakroom.

The cloakroom is available for family use during weekends, half-terms and holidays – during term time the cloakroom is available for school groups only. Prams may be left in the cloakroom – the Gallery accepts no responsibility for items left in cloakrooms and other spaces.

For reasons of security and safety, baby buggies and over-size bags for use in nursing and baby care may be searched on exiting the Gallery.

The Pigott Education Centre Foyer is also the meeting place for most of our regular family events (unless stated otherwise – see individual events for details).

Portico, Getty and Sainsbury Wing entrances

The Portico Entrance gives direct access to the building from Trafalgar Square but has no level access. The Getty and Sainsbury Wing entrances have level access.
