Guided by the latest official advice, we are working on new ways of doing things to safely welcome you back

Entry remains free for everyone, with a charge for some exhibitions. All visitors, including Members, will need to book a timed ticket online before visiting. There are one-way routes around the gallery, guiding you through rooms in the collection. Each route offers access to toilets, a shop and an opportunity to buy food and drink.

For more details on the changes we've made see our FAQs. Updated accessibility information is still being finessed and will be available in the coming weeks.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
