In a nutshell
- Entrance to Royal art gallery for two
- Two course lunch to enjoy close by
- Steeped in culture
Enjoy a day out visiting The Queen's Gallery which is located adjacent to Buckingham Palace, on the site of what was once a private chapel for Queen Victoria.
The chapel was destroyed in an air raid in 1940, and at the suggestion of Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh it was developed as an art gallery for the Royal Collection in 1962.
In 1997, a project began to expand and modernise the gallery, the most significant addition to Buckingham Palace in 150 years. The Queen's Gallery was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in May 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations, and today it hosts a programme of changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection.
The program of exhibitions for 2023 are:
Japan: Courts and Culture - 1 January – 26 February 2023
Style and Society: Dressing the Georgians -21 April – 8 October 2023
