Exhibitions & Introductory Talks

Bring your schools groups to the National Portrait Gallery for a self-guided visit of our exhibitions and either benefit from our free exhibitions programme or concessionary rates for pre-booked schools groups for charged exhibitions. We offer free exhibition introductory talks in the lecture theatre for school groups who have pre-booked paid exhibition tickets. We are unable to offer guided visits inside the exhibitions for space reasons. Entry to the exhibition may need to be staggered depending on the size of the group.
