Description

As the staff at the National Gallery know only too well, you could spend days being seduced by its masterpieces.

Unfortunately that's not realistic for even the most impassioned art lover, so this one-hour guided tour is the perfect lead-in to your visit — whether or not you know your Caravaggio from your Canaletto.

Of course you know Van Gogh ended up short of an ear. But are you aware of how he lost it, and of the alternate theories surrounding this most peculiar example of self-surgery? These are the sorts of fascinating insights and details the tour is brushed with, as you enjoy famous favourites from the likes of Botticelli, Michelangelo, Velázquez and Monet.

Follow your art-historian guide as they lead you on a short and sweet introduction to the Gallery's collection that's laced with knowledge, context and humorous anecdotes aplenty.
