It is said that this is the greatest collections of European painting in the world. See for yourself as you gaze upon Carravaggio, Botticelli, daVinci, Michelangelo, Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Monet, Van Gogh and Cézanne hung in galleries that would cover over 9 football fields.
Cross the Thames via one of the many footbridges and spend the day exploring the south bank where you can pay homage to the wild genius of Salvador Dali at Dali Universe.
