Must-See Museums
in Trafalgar Square

Two must-see museums are located just steps from Trafalgar Square — The National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery.

London's National Portrait Gallery is home to the "Largest Collection of Portraiture in the World." The Gallery features over 1,000 Portraits — including Henry VIII, Florence Nightingale, The Beatles, and the Queen of England.

In Feburary 2010, we visited the museum to see the the first double portrait of Princes William and Harry — plus paintings of other Royals and pics of the late Princess Diana with her sons... and Prince Charles and the boys.


The Churchill War Rooms — a permanent exhibition housed within the historic Cabinet War Rooms — is the world’s first major museum dedicated to life of Winston Churchill.

These top-secret bomb-proof underground Cabinet War Rooms protected Prime Minister Winston Churchill, his War Cabinet, and Chief Military Advisors against air attacks during World War II.

Whitechapel Bell Foundry
Whitechapel Bell Foundry

According to the Guinness Book of Records, Whitechapel Bell Foundry is Britain's oldest manufacturing company.

The bell that tolls at Big Ben was cast here in 1858 — it's the largest bell that was ever cast at Whitechapel. Other famous bells at the Foundry include the original Liberty Bell (1752) and the Great Bell of Montreal.

Foundry Tours are available on select Saturdays only (on a first-come first-served basis) and must be pre-booked well in advance.
