Sketchbook Tour, National Gallery, London

Sketchbook tour, National Gallery, London
Rating: 5 out of 5

If you are an arty type then this is one event you should go to. National Gallery run several of these during the year and event dates are available on their website. 

The event involves a group tour of selected paintings at the gallery. The artist leading the tour lectures the group on the technique used and a bit on the painting's history. Then we were instructed to sketch the painting using s variety of different methods. The idea is more to understand the technique and really see the paintings in depth. So amazing. 

You don't need much for the tour just a pencil and sketchbook but bring along a sharpener - I needed it after 1 hr! 
The tour lasts 1.5 hr and stools are provided. 
It is a really unique experience and I highly recommend it!

Went there for lunch - excellent food and service. Probably one of the best Middle Eastern cuisine in London. We had studded aubergine, spicy kebabs and grilled prawns. Yummy!!

Good prices and service was also really good
Would definitely go again

Probably one of the best Thai restaurants I have been to recently. Not only is the food marvellous but the service is impeccable.

The staff are very welcoming and accommodating. The food was excellent and although I had asked for an extra spicy dish, I couldn't eat it. So the waitress PROACTIVELY changed it for me with no charge, giving me a fantastic dish that I could eat!

We then asked them to call us a taxi an da staff member escorted us to the taxi! Amazing!

The atmosphere is lovely and the décor flawless. I highly recommend it.
Please open one in London!!!
