About the The Queen's Gallery

A public art gallery that displays some of the works from the Royal Collection, which is owned by the Monarch on behalf of the nation.

There is usually a change of displays every six months, with each fresh exhibition themed around a specific topic.

Unlike many art galleries, this one only ever displays items owned by the Monarch and never includes outside items.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
