The King’s Gallery and shop have polished wooden floors. There is a stone floor in the lobby.

Respite seating

There is one bench on the main exhibition level. Further seating is available in the Café at the Palace in the Mews Courtyard.

Assistance animals

Assistance animals are welcome. We recommend that if possible animals wear a jacket or lead slip to identify them as working.

Staff reserve the right to ask visitors to remove their animal if it is deemed not to be behaving appropriately. Arrangements will then be made for the visitor to return without their animal. Please contact [email protected] for more information.


Accessible toilets are located in the Gallery once you have purchased a ticket and also in the Café in the Mews courtyard.



The shop is located opposite the Café and next to the entrance to The King’s Gallery. The shop is on one level with wooden flooring. There is a one-way route in operation through the shop  and capacity will be limited. There is a hand sanitiser station at the entrance point and the shop is operating cashless.

Parking and transport

The nearest disabled parking bays are located on Horse Wynd, just outside the Palace. For further information please see maps & directions.

The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
