If you are on the hunt for things to do in London, then there is hardly a more majestic place to visit than the Queen's Gallery in Buckingham Palace.
It certainly does add a touch of royalty to a trip, visiting the palace itself, complete with a stunning collection of artwork.
Highlights of the gallery include paintings, sculptures, and priceless treasures held in trust by Her Majesty.
Current exhibitions featured at the gallery are 'The Queen: Portraits of the Monarch', and another entitled 'Cairo to Constantinople: Early Photographs of the Middle East'.
Visitors will get a chance to see the 'Dressing the Queen' exhibition by Angela Kelly, personal assistant and curator to Queen Elizabeth II, along with an exploration into Tudor fashion.
