Our collection near you


Two country house partnerships display works from the collection: Montacute House, near Yeovil, Somerset and Beningbrough Hall, near York. Both partners have a programme of changing displays, events and activities produced in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery.

An energetic programme of touring exhibitions and collaborative exhibitions selected by the Gallery's partners can be seen around the UK during the year.

A large number of long term loans to museums and galleries can be seen in many venues around the country as well as many loans to exhibitions and displays organised on a short term basis at other museums and galleries.
