The Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace, London

 

Special exhibition featuring Leonardo Da Vinci: A Life In Drawing

Friday 24 May to Sunday 13 Oct 2019

 

From conservatory to private chapel. 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 south-west 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 The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, the ruined chapel was redeveloped as a gallery for the Royal Collection in 1962. 

 

The £20-million expansion of The Queen’s Gallery was the most significant addition to Buckingham Palace in 150 years. The project was funded entirely by Royal Collection Trust through public admissions to the official residences of The Queen and through associated retail activities. The project involved stone masons, wood carvers, craftsmen working in plaster, copper and bronze, joiners, blacksmiths, painters and cabinet-makers.

 

The Queen’s Gallery was opened by The Queen in May 2002, as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations.

 

See changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection, featuring old master paintings, rare furniture, decorative arts and images from the vast photograph collection.

 

Entry Booked for 13.45/14.00.
