    National Gallery
    Stop: 90 minutes -
    We'll meet at the gallery where I'll begin by giving a brief overview of its history before outlining the tour which will invariably include some Greek Mythology, fabulous women and a bottom or two. The gallery houses an extraordinary collection of western art to around 1900, with numerous well known works by the old Masters so we’ll enjoy paintings by Titian, Velasquez and Cezanne to name but a few. Each tour will last an hour and a half and will weave together scandalous tales about artists, narratives, and glimpses behind the canvas. Nothing is scripted so you'll always have a unique experience and of course I'll try to answer any questions that arise from the tour, or even the ones that have long been puzzling you but you never dared ask! The aim is to entertain as well as inform so everything is accessible, lighthearted and fun - I'll look forward to meeting you to share my passion for art.

    Lynne was so knowledgeable and brought the paintings to life! I learned so much about the stories behind all the paintings and it was the best museum tour I have ever been on. Would love to go on this tour again and again. Whether you have an art history degree or are new to

    We had an informative, fun filled romp through the National Gallery with Lynne. We learned so much about the paintings that we would normally wander past. They were brought to life by her knowledge and great personality. Facts and fun at the same time. We will be sure to book

    I have been fortunate to have travelled extensively and as a consequence I have visited art galleries all over the world. This is one of my favourite things to do. The downside of visiting big city galleries however, is the large collections. It is my experience that by the end

    I had the most amazing time. Lynne is fun and fabulous so she made a tour enjoyable. I don't know much about paintings and even though I love art I find that I always simply don't appreciate it enough. She showed us things I would never notice otherwise. The two hours at the
