Who would expect to find deep beneath their feet an ice-making machine, a telephone exchange, a waterfall, two frozen turbots, and a Prime Minister's bedroom?

Inside it, a tiny portrait painted in water colours. Two of these exquisite little pictures came up for auction earlier this year. Roy Strong bid over Â£60,000 of the tax-payers' money to acquire them for the National Portrait Gallery and, he believes, it was money well spent.
