An iconic venue in central London
The Gallery is located in the heart of London – the centrepiece of Trafalgar Square and the backdrop to historic moments and contemporary celebrations.
Inside the building, it's not only the paintings that demand attention, the grand architecture changes from Victorian splendour to modern minimalism in a few steps, meaning there is always a suitable and impressive space for your event.
As for the paintings on display, please take a look around; Van Gogh, Monet, Turner and Leonardo are just a few of the names you (and your guests) might have heard of.
Entertaining at the Gallery
Entertaining at the National Gallery
Located on Trafalgar Square in the heart of central London, the National Gallery offers a range of elegant event spaces, which can accommodate everything from a private breakfast tour or intimate lunch to a magnificent dinner or drinks reception.
Filming at the Gallery
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.
If you have an enquiry about commercial filming and photography, please contact the events team.
