The Queen's Gallery

Visit a space dedicated to the Royal Collection, one of the world's largest and most significant art collections put together by British Kings and Queens over hundreds of years.

One of the last great European royal collections still intact, this expansive collection - owned by Elizabeth II - is made up of over a million items. Arguably one of the most magnificent British monarchs, George IV built an exceptional art collection, much of which is within the Royal Collection today. View the paintings, metalwork, textiles, furniture, watercolours, books and ceramics created by the finest artists of the day.

The Queen's Gallery Special Exhibition

Masterpieces from Buckingham Palace (4th Dec 2020 - 31st Dec 2021)
The exhibition brings together some of the most important paintings in the Royal Collection from the Picture Gallery at Buckingham Palace. Usually on public view during the annual Summer Opening of the Palace, the paintings will be shown in The Queen’s Gallery while Reservicing works are carried out to protect the historic building for future generations. The Picture Gallery was originally designed by the architect John Nash for George IV to display his collection of Dutch, Flemish & Italian Old Master paintings. Artists represented in the exhibition include Titian, Guercino, Guido Reni, Vermeer, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Rubens, Jan Steen, Claude & Canaletto.

The Royal Mews

The Royal Mews is the mews (or stables) of the British Royal Family, located in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

Here you can see the Gold State Coach along with various horse-drawn carriages and motor cars, used for coronations, State Visits, royal weddings, the State Opening of Parliament and official engagements. For most of the year the stables are home to the working horses that play an important role in The Queen's official and ceremonial duties.
