The National Portrait Gallery will undergo renovation works in 2019 to maintain the integrity of the building. To ensure the safety of the collection and to keep disruption to a minimum, the Gallery expects to close for a six month period from 23 April to 27 September 2019. Due to the closure we will not be able to take school bookings during the period. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We look forward to seeing you when we reopen.

In the meantime, we can come to you via our Virtual Excursions!
