Our galleries are sets of images drawn together from across the image collections. They are curated by our team and usually focus on a particular subject or theme. Iconic London landmarks such as Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral both have dedicated galleries, showing them at different points in their history (and in the case of St Paul’s, as two different buildings). Many other landmarks are covered by ‘Iconic London Landmarks’, which takes you through the streets of the capital to discover Monument, Mansion House, the Tower of London and Piccadilly Circus among others.
The dark side of life in the city is revealed by ‘London Gothic’, a gallery featuring murderers, ghosts, executions and, of course, the infamous Newgate Prison, while Henry VIII and Thomas Cromwell can be found, along with the London they knew, in our ‘Tudor London’ gallery. ‘Victorian Paintings’ presents some of the most famous works in Guildhall Art Gallery, including Pre-Raphaelite masterpieces such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s ‘La Ghirlandata’ and ‘The Eve of St Agnes’ by William Holman Hunt, and images of life the city from the same period can be found in ‘Victorian London in Photographs’.
We add new galleries on a regular basis, so please return to this page to discover more incredible images of London. If there is a subject or period of London’s history that you think would make a good addition, or if you would like to curate a new gallery for Collage, please contact us!
