We wish you a merry Christmas!







Another year is coming to a close, and this one has been pretty special for us. The gallery hosted some monumental exhibitions, reopened its doors after an extensive refurbishment and surpassed a record one million visitors. We, in the shop, we even had our own mini-renovation. It's been busy and challenging and we've enjoyed every minute of it. We want to thank every one of our customers for their loyalty and continued support. Pour yourself a drink, you deserve it,

We've had an incredible few weeks in the run up to Christmas. Thanks to those who have stayed up to date and interacted with our new blog. We hope it's been enjoyable and that the liberal use of exclamation marks hasn't been too grating, it's just so hard to resist! ... sorry.


Don't go anywhere because the weekly blog will back in the New Year, with more in-store events, competitions and even more candid cameos from our dedicated staff. 









If you're still shopping!



We're not open on Christmas Eve, we leave that to Santa. We are, however, open until 5:15pm on Friday 22nd & Saturday 23rd of December so if you need any help/advice on any last minute Christmas presents we are here and happy to help. The gallery reopens on December 27th.











All that's left to say, to every one of our customers, is have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year from all of us in the National Gallery shop. Thank you for a fantastic 2017.
