7 Fabulous Art Galleries ...

Art galleries are some of my favourite places to visit, especially when I’m in another country.

It can be educational or just sheer pleasure.

As a frequent visitor and art lover I know pretty much what I like to see and tend to head straight for the parts of a gallery where I know the impressionists and post impressionists will be.

Generally though, art should stir the senses and shake the soul and here are 7 fabulous art galleries that will do just that.

1. The National Gallery, London, England

Situated on one side of Trafalgar square you get a double cultural hit when you visit the National.

It houses the national collection of Western European paintings from the 13th to the 19th centuries.

It is open, free of charge 361 days a year.

I like it here because it has a good collection of impressionists, a few Van Gogh’s and none of that modern art that just confuses me.
