See the entrants of this year's BP Portrait Award until 20th October. Attached to the National Gallery, so you can do both in one day. Will probably take you the whole day to do both. Free.

A must visit. Direct on tube from Gloucester Road Station. Book lunch / afternoon tea / dinner in their rooftop restaurant. It has a fabulous view of Londons rooftops including Nelson's column.
