Old Glory: The National Gallery

One sunny beautiful day we visited the National Gallery and London Transport Museum with my Mom. I’ll do two separate posts, but I just wanted to put up a few snaps from Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery.

Trafalgar Square, the church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields on a gorgeous day.

Emily’s favorite: Whistlejacket by George Stubbs

This picture doesn’t express the power of this painting. It’s actually almost life size. The perfect accuracy, vivid colors and size make a huge impression on you. Although I don’t have many photos to share from the inside of the National Gallery, I can tell you that’s definitely worth a visit. Another one of London’s free museums, it’s packed with real classics as well as lesser known gems.

We had a gorgeous sunset as we strolled over to check out London’s Transport Museum. More on that in the next post!
