THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY

The National Portrait Gallery holds the most extensive collection of portraits in the world.

Just a short walk from The Trafalgar, the Gallery aims to bring history to life through its display, exhibition, research, learning, outreach, publishing and digital programmes. These allow them to stimulate debate and to address questions of biography, diversity and fame which lie at the heart of issues of identity and achievement.

What’s On: The Road to 2012

The National Portrait Gallery/BT Road to 2012 Project is a three year collaboration between the National Portrait Gallery and BT, the official communications services partner for London 2012. It will create 100 world-class photographic portraits celebrating both high-profile people and those working behind the scenes who collectively are making the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics happen. The Project tracks the preparation and implementation stages of the Games, with the theme for portraits over the next three years being ‘bid and delivery’, ‘staging’, and ‘legacy’.
