We were nearby (Royal Mews) and so stopped in, but honestly, I was surprised at how little there was to see. Not worthwhile at all.

I'm the sort of person who gravitates toward museums with gorgeous paintings, and this was absolutely what I wanted! Incredible self-portraits and an audio tour to walk you through the story behind most of them. The information in the audio tour gave a great insight...More

While we enjoyed the pieces we did see, it was a bit underwhelming for the cost. I would recommend this only if the current exhibition truly speaks to you.

We were early for our state room visit and decided to visit the Gallery. It's a fairly small collection on display but nice to see - amazing to actually see the miniatures.

This show focuses on self portraits of artists in the royal collection. The works range from Rembrandt to Hockney and include the only known portrait of Leonardo da Vinci. The quality of the art varies widely but the show demonstrates the incredible scope of the...More

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

Hi, I am the 1st time visitor to London. I have London Pass, do I have to obtain the timed ticket at the ticket desk at Queen's Gallery? For example : If I arrive at 15:00, I queue up for the timed ticket for upcoming entry (15:15) or I can choose the time? What is the procedure of obtaining the gallery ticket by London Pass? Thank you for the advice.
