The Queen's Gallery

Located inside: Palace of Holyroodhouse

The Queen's Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse presents works of art from the collection of the British royal family. Queen's Gallery in Edinburgh was opened in 2002, at the behest of Elizabeth II. The gallery prepares a different exhibition each year based on a collection of paintings, sculptures and goldsmith's art from the royal treasuries.

The Edinburgh Gallery is the younger "sister", founded in 1962 at The Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace in London. Both present collections of the Royal Collection, whose works are located in 13 residences in Great Britain. The Royal Collection is the largest private art collection in the world with over one million exhibits.

Holyrood Palace was built on the orders of King James IV (1473-1513). In addition to The Queen's Gallery, it offers visitors the opportunity to see, among others The Throne Room, the royal bedroom and the Grand Gallery - the royal banquet and audience hall.
