Brilliant, everything is there for the comfort of the visitors. Every time we go there, we find some new exhibitions, new exhibits either borrowed or purchased by the Gallery. Although it was a rainy day and there were a lot of people around, it didn't feel crowded, excellent access to the paintings. There is a cloakroom if you wish to leave your belongings for the time of your visit and a healthy cafe downstairs, where you can also print out the useful information about the halls or pictures/painters.

My favourite gallery in the whole world, and a recent visit confirmed it, yes the Met has more art, but the quality and variety is superb here. The renaissance is well covered but here you can see the Medieval art so close that you can see how the figurative and symbolic art of earlier times was transformed into the realism and use of light and shadow that epitomises the renaissance. See the Hogarth paintings, the Madonna of the Meadow, the George and the Dragon and the Annunciation, then leave. Look hard at four or five paintings, then go and come back another day to examine five others.

Who knew there were so many types of portrait art? Old or modern, its a great walk through the who's who in history - great if you have children.
