Many people flock to Buckingham Palace for the summer opening and walk right past one of the other treasures of the crown – The Queen’s Gallery. Unlike Buckingham Palace, the Gallery is open year round. Reopened in 2002 for the Queen’s jubilee year, the newly remodeled Gallery is a beautiful venue in itself. The Queen’s Gallery was created to present different parts of the Royal Collection to the public with rotating exhibitions. These exhibitions are carefully organized to display the finest works of art complemented by furniture, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, silver and gold. The Royal Collection reflects the taste of kings and queens over the past 500 years. And an exquisite taste it was, only the best antiques, paintings and sculptures have found their way there.
So don’t pass up a chance to see more of the collection than the Palace can hold, visit the Queen’s Gallery anytime. And during the summer opening of Buckingham Palace, plan to spend the day at the Palace and see the Gallery and Mews as well.
