The Queen's Gallery is a public art gallery at Buckingham Palace, home of the British monarch, in London. It exhibits works of art from the Royal Collection (those works owned by the King or Queen "in trust for the nation" rather than privately) on a rotating basis; about 450 works are on display at any one time.Plan to visit The Queen's Gallery and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended London attractions using our London tour itinerary planning tool.
The gallery is at the west front of the Palace, on the site of a chapel bombed during the Second World War, and first opened in 1962. Over the following 37 years it received 5 million visitors, until it was closed in 1999–2002 for extension work carried out by John Simpson. On 21 May 2002, the gallery was reopened by Elizabeth II to coincide with her Golden Jubilee. The extension added the current Doric entrance portico and several new rooms, more than tripling the size of the building. It is open to the public for much of the year.

Wonderful experience! Efficiently managed large number of visitors. friendly & courteous. Very informative and fascinating. Loved being able to walk in the gardens and take a royal cup of tea! The shop is extremely tempting too! Lovely to think my ticket lasts for a year... I will be back
