A History of Britain in 12 and a Half Portraits – indoor tour at the National Portrait Gallery

You can never trust the weather in Britain and so an indoor tour is always on the option list.  This is looking at the history of Britain of the last 500 years or so, but through the medium of 12 and a half people and their portraits.  The history of Great Britain is also the history of Great Britons and the history of what makes Britain great.  Here, I pick 12 portraits and a sneak peek at another.  People who represent their era, or who represent a part of what makes Britain great.  If you love history but prefer the personal to the political, the pen portraits of these 12 and a half people will give you an insight on British history and the British character.  And of course, it is indoors and out of the rain!
