Buckingham Palace: The Queen's Gallery Entrance Ticket

1. Buckingham Palace: The Queen's Gallery Entrance Ticket

Visit the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace and soak up its extravagance. The building that originally stood on the site of the current Queen’s Gallery was designed by John Nash as one of Buckingham Palace’s three identical conservatories or pavilions in the form of Ionic temples. It was constructed on the southwest corner of the Palace, facing the garden, and was completed in 1831. The conservatory was converted into a private chapel for Queen Victoria in 1843 but destroyed in an air raid in 1940. At the suggestion of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, it was redeveloped as a gallery for the Royal Collection in 1962.   The current Queen’s Gallery was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in May 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations. It hosts a program of changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection. The Royal Collection holds some of the most significant examples of Japanese art and design in the western world. For the first time, highlights from this outstanding collection are brought together to tell the story of 300 years of diplomatic, artistic, and cultural exchange between the British and Japanese royal and imperial families. The Courts and Culture exhibition includes rare pieces of porcelain and lacquer, samurai armor, embroidered screens, and diplomatic gifts from the reigns of James I to Queen Elizabeth II. Together, they offer a unique insight into the worlds of ritual, honor, and artistry linking the courts and cultures of Britain and Japan.

Was the most amazing trip with guide app and it is way easy to travel all around with it.Highly Recommend to the Foregin as well as local travelers in UK. I will be looking forward to hearing best travel package for other European destinations,thank you.

World-class paintings by important artists. numbers nicely limited so no bustle and had time to stop and stare. well curated with concise and useful information

Travellers should book the Queens Gallery on the official gallery website, not through you. That way they get multiple entry and save money.

The directions were very good. We could exchange the tickets directly at the cash desk and go in. The cloakroom is free.

No issues getting our tickets at the ticket counter. Exhibit was fantastic!
