Myself and my family going back generations have contributed to the upkeep of Buckingham Palace. Yet as a British subject we still had to dig deep to pay an entry fee. Not good value at all.

The Queen’s Gallery was worth a visit if you’ve got a London Pass or something like it. But I wouldn’t spend the time or money otherwise. There are so many other great places not far away. Go to the Mew!

We had time before our palace time so used our London Pass here. It was truly a lovely little museum with some very beautiful art and jewelry. Worth taking a little time to wander thru this little gem of a place

Unfortunately Buckingham Palce wasn’t open for visitors during our time in London, however The Queens Gallery was very interesting, showcasing a spectacular display of Colonial Indian artefacts and gifts presented to The British Monarchy. Beautiful small building, and as always, spotlessly maintained and exhibited.

We spent a hour or so viewing the items and the art on display, it was very interesting. Some of the craftsmanship displayed is amazing. And the history behind the items was very interesting to learn.

Very nice collection. I visited the collection with my family and I suggested to others. Worth a visit. No long queues. We took about 3 hours to visit.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Its a separate entrance and fee but you can buy a ticket/pass for a year. Its well worth it as the exhibitions are great.
