27 (11) National Portrait Gallery

There is a lot of information provided with the portraits which makes the audio tour a little redundant - unless your travel partner won't shut up. Peer out for the small, dimly lit but unique portrait of Jane Austin.

If you keen to see any family likenesses you can find a specific portrait’s location on-line or access directly from the gallery itself.
