This was another stop in London that I thought I would go in, quickly see portraits from the Tudor era and then fly out the door to something else. Wrong! Three hours later, I walked out the door, amazed at the beautiful portraits I had seen, not just from the Tudor era (though I did stay in that area longer than most) but throughout the gallery. The art work is displayed beautifully and again, we had a minimal amount of people around and so it was reasonably quiet and peaceful. We debated between visiting the National Portrait Gallery rather than the National Gallery (knowing we couldn't do both) but we couldn't pass up the amazing opportunity to see the paintings I had enjoyed seeing in books (Elizabeth I Coronation Portrait for one.) A great treat.
