  • DaveG – “I've probably been to every gallery in London at least 10 times but I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been to the national. It's just so peaceful and nice inside you can get away from the traffic outisde and sit down on a nice leather couch and take in the pieces in front of you without being bothered by anyone. It's quiet like a library inside and everyone is respectful of the art. I tend to give the famous names like van gogh and picasso a miss these days, and settle down in front of the epic religious paintings, showing scenes from the bible. I’m not religious, but there is so much going on in those paintings it's like watching a story on the television. These kinds of works you just dont see anymore these days, and that is the art world's loss.”
  • PWalker – “This is the best gallery I have ever been to, and I absolutely love it. I have been loads of times already and I never tire of it, such is the breadth of masterpieces on display. There is every kind of art here, from devotional religious pieces ato landscapes, seascapes, and some amazoing portraits. When you look at the list of artists on display here, you cannot help but be wowed. I would write you a list, but it will be quicker if I just tell you that every famous artist from the last half-century is here! . If you are an art lover, then this should be your first stop, your second stop, and your third and fourth stop too.”

I was walking here from Leicester Square five minutes ago and it was all busy busy busy. Pavements heaving, people jostling bustling barging elbows out, running everywhere, cars all over the place, sirens blaring. And then you walk through the gallery double doors a… continued”
