The National Portrait Gallery is very well laid out. The collection is very complete and you see and learn a lot. We started at the top with the older art and then went down for the more modern portraits. We preferred the older portraits, but the more modern ones were also worth seeing. Very well worth a visit (and it is free aswell!).
