Located in London's Buckingham Palace, Queen's Gallery is a place where you can view fine art from the Royal Collection itself. The gallery exhibits pieces from renowned artists, such as Rubens and Vermeer, that have belonged to monarchs for centuries. Also, artifacts such as jewelry, furniture, and sculptures are on display. Those with a London Pass can be admitted for free.
We waited 2 hrs in line to buy a 25lb ticket $50.00. When we got to the ticket booth they were selling tickets to enter in another 3hrs. That would have made our wait 5hrs to go on an 1.5hr tour. We had other plans so gave up the palace tour.
When i visited London 2 years ago. I did enjoyed because of the view it was terrific. The palace is to huge and have amasing Garden, Lots of tourist took picture, I took also But then i found out my battery is empty, i was very upset my teacher compfort me she's very nice person and she's one of my friend now! I am sure i will come back there, because there is lots of things to see. The garden is so huge as well lots of people walking there mostly lovers and couple, etc. it's very romantic hmmmmmm I can felt the love in the air lol!
The only thing i don't like there is to crowded sometimes,
I was able to see the changing of the guard from a coveted spot on the gate. It was beautiful. When I heard the music I ran over in time to see the guards marching from down the road. (The pictures were awesome)
The ceremony was longer than I anticipated(about 1 1/2 hour)but I'm not complaining! They played a few songs-- one of them was the theme from Titanic. Me and few of the people in the crowd unabashedly sang along.
Afterwards, I purchased some tourist gifts in the gift shop. I DID NOT pay to enter any part of the palace since everything was so expensive!! No, I don't regret it.
Buckhingham Palace was absolutely jaw-droppingly splendid. I was able to get in on the tour of the state rooms, which I understand are only open a couple months a year. You can wander from room to room at a leisurely pace with an electronic earpiece that gives you information about the room. The details around the rooms are magnificent.
One person in the room with me asked the docent (or whatever they call the tour guides in the rooms) what they used to make the ceilings look gold. The docent looked up and then told the person, well, they use gold to make it look gold. Wow. That's a lot of gold.
LIKED ALL; EXCEPT SLEEP STATE IN OXYMORON. I DID NOT FEEL THE ROYAL PRESENCE AS IN TELEVISION BUT THE TOUR WAS NORMAL IN FORMAL. I ENJOYED PAARTIALLY THE PHOTOS I TOOK AAT THE BACK GARDENS. I LIKED THE THREE OOO AT THE WALLS. I BOUGHT SOME NICE PRESENTS. IT WAS NORMAAL AND FRIENDLY.I NEED THAT NOW - YOU SEE?
We stood out in the rain with cold blowing winds waiting to see the changing of the guards. After 2 1/2 hours they called it off due to the weather. I have seen it before and wanted the rest of my family to experience it so was disapointed but think everyone should see this
The palace is another to-do when visiting London. If you're going to see the changing of the guard, I'd advise to get there early. While there, you can visit the Royal Mews (where the Royal carriages are held), the Queens Gallery (an art collection) and the Guards Museum. Actually next to the Guards Museum is the courtyard where the changing of the guards begins (the guardsmen lineup there). Unfortunately the palace wasn't open when I visited - its only available for tours in the summer. But anytime during the year, its worth the visit.
