The National Gallery Minimize

Seurat's 'Bathers at Asnières'' hangs in Room 44 of The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square LondonThe National Gallery is the focal point in Trafalgar Square in London. It's an imposing building taking up one end of the square and houses the national collection of Western European painting from the 13th to the 19th centuries. The collection is on show 361 days a year, free of charge. They also run lots of interesting events, particularly I enjoy the free music performances which take place on alternate Fridays from 6pm to 7pm.

My painting hangs in room 44 Seurat's 'Bathers at Asnières'' and I try to visit it as often as I can.

Out and About in London for Free Minimize

During the year, there are loads of free events in London, e.g. St. Patricks Day, Chinese New Year, West End Live.

Walk in the Parks
There are so many parks in London, my favourite is Hyde Park.

London Open Houses
This is a free event in September, check the website for next years dates. There are over 750 buildings that are free to visit over a weekend, for example take a tour of The Bank of England and touch a gold bar!

West End Live
This is a free event usually hosted at Leicester Square, but this year (2011) it was hosted at Trafalgar Square. It's a show case for London's West End and features a taster from each of the Shows, live performances and Free. This year I stood in the lovely rain and heard The Phantom sing (Love Never Dies), and then watched the children from Billy Elliot dance (Billy Elliot). I then went into The National Gallery to visit my painting Georges-Pierre Seurat's Bathers at Asnières for a little while and when I came out, there was the cast of We Will Rock You murdering Queen's songs. Poor old Freddie Mercury must have been spinning in his grave R.I.P.

I think the best way to explore London is on foot, forget the Tube. The best podcasts I've found so far, plus free, are from the Guardian. Download them, walk about and enjoy. Read more....
