Location enquiries

We are a gallery, but we're also a screening venue and a filming location – Bond met Q in front of Turner's 'Fighting Temeraire', but that's top secret.

The Gallery has a range of filming locations, from the grand Victorian picture galleries to our large, contemporary entrance and behind-the-scenes spaces such as our research library and rooftop - we have panoramic views of Trafalgar Square and central London.
