Tours

Plan your visit to the Gallery around one of our ready-made tours (listed below). Alternatively on arrival proceed to the Portrait Explorer touchscreens in the Digital Space where you can print a tour with the location of each portrait marked on a tour map. You can additionally create your own personal tour of portraits on display. Tours consist of 12 portraits.

If you have ideas for other tours you would like developed, please email us at newmedia@npg.org.uk and we will share them with a wider audience. Thank you!
