The reservations team at Serviced City Pads will be delighted to discuss London Serviced Apartments and what option will be ideal for you.The National Gallery has aquired paintings from the turn of the 17th century and held many guises until the formation of the National Gallery in 1824, there have been many times where the trustees have bid for a particular painting collection and not been successful and at the start of the 20th century many grand aristorcratic families fell on hard times and due to the aricultural crisis had to sell their painting collection. The National Gallery stepped in to try and save these national treasures from falling into the hands of foreign collectors so purchased many paintings to secure the pleasure for the Nation. However they were outbid by American plutocrats who whisked them to the United States so the National Art Collectors fund was set up to stop the wonderful art collections from falling into foreign ownership, from this point onwards many fantastic artworks were saved for the nation due to this fund.

London Serviced Apartments give the guest increase space versus the one room scenario of a hotel room, many guests feel that an apartment in central gives them a sense of home away from home feel where they can purchase food at local supermarkets then go home and cook in the privacy of there own apartment.In recent times the significant addition to the gallery is the Sainsbury Wing which can be seen from Trafalgar Square and I think this is a great addition. The next must see event will be Leonardo Da Vinci the worlds master painter which will run from November fifth 2011 through to February fifth 2012, this will bring together the most extensive range of work from Da Vinci and the most extensive collection of his work ever shown in the world and this certainly is a pleasure to go and see.
