Enjoyed leisurely viewing of a comprehensive Canaleto collection. Lots of information and able to get up close to see the details.

...then this small gallery, with its oft changed exhibits, might be just for you! We enjoyed an exhibition entitled Canaletto and the art of Venice. Very interesting. I would think that 2-3 hours would be sufficient to cover this gallery.

Dropped by to check out the Queen's pictures. What we got was HM's over-hyped Canaletto's (obviously bought as a job lot). For the price of my ticket I expected curatorial and historical context and rigour. What was delivered was aimless and second rate. (If you...More

The Caneletto Exhibition, currently at The Queen's Gallery, is fantastic. There is timed entry into the gallery and after going through an airport type security and placing coats in the cloakroom, you go upstairs and receive a free audio guide to the exhibition. There is...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
