Date Posted: 10/01/2012

Treasures from The Queen’s Palaces is a new exhibition running at the Palace of Holyroodhouse from 16th March to 4th November, showcasing a host of spectacular treasures from the Royal Collection in celebration of Her Majesty’s diamond jubilee year.

Presented in The Queen’s Gallery, Treasure from The Queen’s Palaces reflects the tastes of monarchs and other members of the royal family who have shaped one of the world’s great art collections.

Exhibiting over 100 works selected from nine royal residences and over five centuries worth of collecting, visitors can view paintings, drawings, miniatures, watercolours, manuscripts, furniture, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery. This is the first time that many of the items have been on public display in Scotland.

Parties of 15 or more people planning a visit to The Queen’s Gallery can take advantage of discounted group rates with free entry for the group travel organiser.
