National Gallery - Portico Terrace

The National Gallery is located in the heart of London – the centrepiece of Trafalgar Square and the backdrop to historic moments and contemporary celebrations.

Inside the building, it’s not only the paintings that demand attention, the grand architecture changes from Victorian splendour to modern minimalism in a few steps, meaning there is always a suitable and impressive space for your event.

Take in the atmospheric views of Trafalgar Square, Westminster and St Martins-in-the-Fields from the Portico Terrace. Why not couple with the Mosaic Terrace or Barry Rooms for a larger event or dinner.

Make the most of your exclusive access to the Gallery with a private tour. A Gallery expert will lead you through the empty Gallery after hours to discover the history and stories from the collection. Also available are bespoke tours and talks, built around your theme.


Reception: 100 outside, up to 200 including the Foyer
Dinner: 60

This space can also be hired for wedding receptions.
