  • Visit The Queen’s Gallery, opened by Her Majesty The Queen in May 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations
  • Soak up the royal English splendor and enjoy an audio tour of the Gallery's current exhibition, including special insights and commentary from Royal Collection Trust experts
  • See some of the world's finest paintings, drawings and decorative arts, from the Royal Collection

Step through the pillared portico and right into The Queen’s Gallery. This public art gallery is part of Buckingham Palace and thus a pretty special place to view some (royally approved) artwork! The latest exhibition Charles II: Art & Power celebrates the opulence of the Stuart court, and explores the role of the arts in the re-establishment of the monarchy.

After a decade of austerity under the rule of Oliver Cromwell, Charles II was eager to return the royal courts to their former splendor, commissioning countless artworks and decorations that glorified and legitimized the monarchy.

The highlight of the new exhibition is John Michael Wright's larger-than-life portrait of Charles II in coronation robes and the real silver plate which sat on the high altar of Westminster Abbey during Charles's coronation.

You'll also see paintings by the old masters, rich tapestries, and a spectacular collection of silver-gilt furniture which would have sparkled throughout the Stuart court.

Don't forget your free multimedia guide for special insights and commentary from Royal Collection Trust experts!

The staff was extremely courteous, actually typical British style. We actually were booked for the 3 pm slot and had gone for the changing of the guard and when we requested them they went through the hierachy as they do not like crowding, which is understandable, but they came with a positive response with a polite we can accomodate you at the 1 pm slot if you do not mind waiting for 15 minutes (as we had reached around 12.35 pm. As visitors we respected their need for having few people and the fact that they were willing to accomodate as a positive. At the gate we were politely told to leave our bag at the bag counter near the cloak and pointed to the location. Even inside no pushing or please move on, we were given sufficient time if we wanted to spend more time for something. Yes all 5 stars for the whole team

A very interesting and beautiful exhibition, well curated and resourced . The building is gracious and the staff polite. The only criticism I have is that the entrance was a little confusing

Visited Charles 2nd exhibition. Much smaller than the Charles 1st at the RA with such sumptuous works of art, but a very interesting show, including lots of good portraits of his mistresses and contemporary prints of King and Court and good information in each space. The Queen has lovely loos and the staff were kind and helpful. Security checks the only minor inconvenience...
