Seeing the Royal Collection
The Royal Collection is one of the biggest and most important art collections in the world. It’s shared between the royal family’s residences, but you can see a large chunk of it in or near Buckingham Palace in London. Buy a Royal Day Out Ticket and see works of art by Old Masters and fine furniture from England and France in Buckingham Palace’s magnificent 19 State Rooms (July-October). Nearby, The Queen’s Gallery has changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection, while The Royal Mews displays historic coaches and carriages, including The Gold State Coach used at every coronation since George IV’s in 1821.
