The PortraitsThe National Portrait Gallery Website contains a full description of the Castle's display of portraits as well as other information about the work of Bodelwyddan Castle Trust.
A number of significant works from the National Portrait Gallery's 19th Century collections are exhibited at the Castle in the period rooms. This long-term display of nationally significant works of art has been arranged through a partnership between Bodelwyddan Castle Trust and the National Portrait Gallery. The Trust and Gallery work together to show elements of the permanent collection as well as occasional temporary exhibitions. Visitors to Bodelwyddan Castle can also use the NPG's Portrait Explorer which is a means of accessing in digital format many of the treasures held by the Gallery in London and at their two other partner venues Beningbrough and Montacute.
