Our aim is ‘to promote through the media of portraits the appreciation of the men and women who have made and are making British history and culture, and ... to promote the appreciation and understanding of portraiture in all media’. With more than 1.8 million visitors each year, the Gallery is one of the country's most important and popular galleries.
The Gallery is committed to equality and is a member of the Employers' Forum on Disability, Race for Opportunity and the Equality Exchange.
