Buckingham Palace: The Queen's Gallery Entrance Ticket

2. Buckingham Palace: The Queen's Gallery Entrance Ticket

Visit the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace and soak up its extravagance. The building that originally stood on the site of the current Queen’s Gallery was designed by John Nash as one of Buckingham Palace’s three identical conservatories or pavilions in the form of Ionic temples. It was constructed on the southwest corner of the Palace, facing the garden, and was completed in 1831. The conservatory was converted into a private chapel for Queen Victoria in 1843 but destroyed in an air raid in 1940. At the suggestion of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, it was redeveloped as a gallery for the Royal Collection in 1962.   The current Queen’s Gallery was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in May 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations. It hosts a program of changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection. The Royal Collection holds some of the most significant examples of Japanese art and design in the western world. For the first time, highlights from this outstanding collection are brought together to tell the story of 300 years of diplomatic, artistic, and cultural exchange between the British and Japanese royal and imperial families. The Courts and Culture exhibition includes rare pieces of porcelain and lacquer, samurai armor, embroidered screens, and diplomatic gifts from the reigns of James I to Queen Elizabeth II. Together, they offer a unique insight into the worlds of ritual, honor, and artistry linking the courts and cultures of Britain and Japan.

If you make good use of the days that the London Pass is valid (ie visit a lot of attractions), then financially it is an absolute advantage. However, this requires good planning (e.g. advance registration and time slot reservations for some attractions), and the travel times (sometimes very long distances in the subway stations when changing from one line to the other) and queues (crown jewels in the Tower! ) must be taken into account. In any case, we didn't manage to "work off" our entire balance with a 3-day London pass.

With the COVID situation an obligation to book time slot for many attraction, we thought we would have difficulties accessing attraction with the Pass. Everything went very well. I would recommend buying the pass

It was great value, however we should be refunded a bit on all the sites that were cancelled due to Queens death. I think you know which ones. Otherwise It was great.

Beautiful walk where you pass the most important places and receive all explanations and many extra anecdotes by our guide.

Very easy to use. Saved us time in lines and money
