    The actual route aside from not seeing the front of Buckingham Palace was good. What really let the whole experience down was the headphone commentary. Our group found this to be childish and informative in any tangible way. This tour would be greatly improved if there was a continual commentary talking about all of the sites and places of interest that we passed. Scrap the quiz and the mindless banter. No one is interested.

  • Buckingham Palace: The Queen's Gallery Entrance Ticket

    2. Buckingham Palace: The Queen's Gallery Entrance Ticket

    Visit the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace and soak up its extravagance. 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, it was redeveloped as a gallery for the Royal Collection in 1962.   The current Queen’s Gallery was opened by Her Majesty The Queen in May 2002, as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations. It hosts a programme of changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection.

What people are saying about Buckingham Palace

That was to celebrate my son's 12th birthday. We enjoyed exploring London. Cruise on Thames with fantastic commentary of captains. Good facilities, nice and clean. The only thing, we had not enough time to finish all activities in on day. Bus stop running at about 5pm, not enough for us but i am planing to take another tour soon. Is worth of money. Thank you to all nice tootbus and city cruise staff. Very up lifting after spending time in lockdowns. Thank you, my son really enjoyed it.

Very nice tour and very clear also they are helpful when you need. But it should tell on the bus stop the time table to know how long we will wait for the next one.
