Faces of Britain

The BP Portrait Award show is typically an easy-to-digest affair at the National Portrait Gallery. Craig Wylie look home £25,000 for his winning entry (left) and gets a £4,000 commission. Museumgoers even have a say, voting for the BP Visitors’ Choice award. More of Britain’s finest at the bottom of the post. 

The museum is on the backside of the much larger, slower-to-digest National Gallery, which faces Trafalgar Square. (Pigeons! The pigeons!) But also on the square is a “scandalous” sculpture of a disabled pregnant woman by Marc Quinn. 

Getting there: Northern or Bakerloo lines to Charing Cross, then walk north past St. Martin’s in the Fields.
