Grand in scale but easy to manage, the Courtauld has a magnificent collection of art from medieval to the present. The courtyard is spectacular for people watching or just admiring the architecture.

Beautiful gallery with a fine selection of Impressionists, along with many other paintings and a lovely building too. The cafe is worth a visit for a cup of tea!

The Courtauld Gallery has a neat selection of art; gems by Boudin, Cezanne, Degas, Manet and many others. The entry is not free but it is worth every penny.

In addition to the Impressionist collection, the Courtauld always has...More

This is a small gallery with a limited number of exhibits but it's really a nice collection in an interesting space. It's well worth the time and entrance fee.
