London has a dizzying array of museums and galleries but I always make a point of visiting the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace whenever I'm in London. The gallery is small and manageable by the standards of other museums and generally features displays of items carefully selected from the Royal Collection by its curators. Generally these are items that the public would not get to see in the normal run of events. Most recently I visited to see an exhibit entitles The Northern Renaissance featuring works by Albrecht Durer and Hans Holbein among others. It was exquisite. As I mentioned the gallery is not large so the exhibits are not enormous or exhausting in the way that many others can be. Additionally the gallery is rarely crowded, the staff are polite and helpful beyond belief and there is a Gift Shop with lots of "Royal" souvenir stuff that's a step up from the usual tourist tat. If you enjoy some culture but don't want to be overwhelmed this is the perfect place to visit for a culture fix with a difference.
