The Queen’s Gallery is No.10 in our Top 10 list of art galleries.

The Queen’s Gallery is part of the west wing of Buckingham Palace, and displays the pick of the Royal Family’s art collection.

It includes works by De Vinci and Canaletto, as well as fine chinas, porcelains and Fabergé eggs.

History of the Queen’s Gallery

The Queen’s art gallery started out as a chapel designed by John Nash in 1843. But the building that we see today is surprisingly modern, having been built as late as the 1960s.

It was redeveloped from the chapel’s bombed-out husk – the remains of which were caused during the Blitz.

Craig’s review of Queen's Gallery The Queen certainly does have a lot of nice knick-knacks. She's got so many of them, in fact, that she's she's had to open up a whole extra art gallery next-door to Buckingham Palace. The first thing you need to know about the Queen's Gallery is that it has an annoying habit of selling you a timed ticket during busy periods. So if you're one of those meticulous people who plans out… continued
Craig’s review of National Portrait Gallery The National Portrait Gallery is probably my favourite gallery in London because it appeals to history lovers as well as art lovers. It's all about the sitters, not the painters. Admire the people, not the paintings. But that's not to say that the paintings aren't good, because they are -- they still have pieces by Hockney and Holbein, etc. -- but if they need a picture of a British… continued
