LONDON | The National Portrait Gallery opened in 1856 and was the world’s first gallery to deal exclusively in portraits. The gallery houses portraits of historically important and famous British people, with artworks being selected based on the subject of the painting rather than the artist.

The collection includes paintings, sculptures, photographs and videos, and features a wide range of subjects from fields as diverse as royalty, politics, literature, film, and music. As well as the permanent collection, the gallery exhibits a changing selection of contemporary works, and exhibitions of portrait art by individual artists.

In mid 2017 plans were announced to refurbish the gallery and convert office space into gallery space, expanding the size of the gallery by 20%. This is the first time that the entire collection of the gallery will be redisplayed in the gallery’s history.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences.Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
