Queen's House, London Reviews
I've passed this rather grand building on many occasions, but never ventured inside. Unfortunately I had 2 very young children and a buggy in tow on my visit. Though there are lifts to help you navigate the floors of the house I wasn't really able explore as freely. Entry is free but the house is beautiful on the outside. Inside is a gallery with guides and information about the origins of the rooms. The beautiful tulip staircase. The original court floor and ceiling. It was a slightly hasty visit and unfortunately I missed seeing the orangery due to a couple of whiny children. Well worth a visit if you are passing through or have a keen interest in the portraits and paintings.
I liked how the whole place looks. Starting from it being in the middle of neatly manicured grass garden to it's heighted ceiling, spiral stairs, stairs at the facade and even the ground floor. It would have been such a marvel back in it's time. Also had an interesting history and how it was passed from one generation to other. PS - for new visitors, it is right next to National Maritime museum, University and has Royal observatory in its backdrop, on a hillock. Visit all three, and take your time, so start early. Big shoutout to the lady who received visitors at the gate, she was such a courteous soul.
An often overlooked gallery and yet this is a real gem. The views and exhibits are really beautiful. You only need an hour and it's free. Find the beautiful and newly restored tulip spiral staircase.
Enjoyed the visit. Magnificent art connected with Britain as a seafaring nation. Includes the Armada portrait of Elizabeth I.
Covered a corporate event here a few days ago where the front green areas were completely transformed for the client. There were large teepes, water games, large inflatable games, bars on the ground, food stalls, etc. The venue team are extremely professional, friendly and welcoming. Attentive to the client needs and very accommodating. The client installed large structures on the grounds for the one day corporate and the surroundings were very Photo impressive. I look forward to shooting here again soon
