See the greatest portraits of the Tudor and Elizabethan eras

The top floor galleries at the National Portrait Gallery cover the Tudor and Elizabethan periods, from 1485 to 1603, as well as early English kings.

Here, over two rooms, you can see some of the best portraits which exist of Tudor greats like Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey, Elizabeth I, Sir Francis Drake, Thomas Cromwell and Archbishop Cranmer, pictures which you will probably remember from your school textbooks.

If this sounds like your sort of thing, the best bit is that this part of the gallery is absolutely free. For more on the Tudor section click here and for the Elizabethan section click here.
