Description

For anyone who loves a bit of royal history, a visit to the Queen’s Gallery is a must. Opened in 1962, the gallery within Buckingham Palace was built out of the bomb-damaged ruins of a former private chapel. Now totally redeveloped, it is a permanent space dedicated to the art and treasures held in trust by The Queen for the Nation.

The gallery takes its exhibits from the Royal Collection, one of the largest and most important collections in the world and one of the last great European royal collections to remain intact. During your hour-long audio tour, you’ll learn about the sovereigns and consorts who have influenced the shape and diversity of the Collection.

Art enthusiasts will be thrilled to view over 450 works on display, including works from the likes of Duccio, Dürer, Clouet, Rubens and Van Dyck. Discover a rich and varied collection of sculptures, furniture and photographs, some commissioned as grand diplomatic gifts, others as intimate personal mementos between the royal family. As the exhibit is continually rotating, there is always a new piece of priceless art to view.

From priceless art, to invaluable guests; there are few institutions that can claim to have had Winston Churchill, Henry James and Ian Fleming as members. Even fewer who now welcome Sir Elton John, Steven Spielberg and Olivia Newton-John. St. James’s Hotel & Club has been attracting such personalities for more than 160 years. First as a gentlemen’s club and now as a five-star hotel for those in search of a luxurious retreat in one of London’s most desirable areas.

Intimate, sophisticated and modern, Seven Park Place is the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, showcasing some of Executive Head Chef, William Drabble’s, signature dishes. Over three courses, you’ll sample plates such as seared fillet of mackerel with spiced apple chutney, roast cod fillet and seared squid or breast of wild duck with foie gras. Truly guests will also receive complimentary tea and coffee, to end off the day with service fit for a queen.
