Let your event tell a timeless story in one of London’s most iconic historic locations.

Steeped in history and elegance, the National Gallery’s enduring charm and timeless allure continues to captivate those seeking an extraordinary location for their celebrations and gatherings.

With a storied legacy dating back to 1824, its grand architecture, seamlessly blends Victorian splendour and modern minimalism, elegantly framing an astounding collection boasting over 2,300 paintings. From Van Gogh's bold brushstrokes to Monet's enchanting landscapes, your event will be set against the backdrop of masterpieces that have shaped history and culture, a one-of-a-kind experience leaving lasting memories for you and your guests.

Our exceptional event spaces provide exquisite settings for a wide array of occasions. Make a difference with charity galas that leave a lasting impact on the cause you champion, foster meaningful connections through client and networking events and product launches that set new standards of elegance, or perhaps just indulge in the magic of a cocktail party as the sun sets over the London skyline from the picturesque Portico Terrace.

By hosting your event with us, you will also support the National Gallery's key objectives to enhance the collection, care for the collection and provide the best possible access to visitors now and for generations to come.
