The Royal Gallery has a smart dress code which means a business suit for gentlemen and a dress or suit for ladies, uniform or national dress. Jeans, short trousers, and sports shoes are not permitted. Whilst The Royal Gallery is mostly under cover, it is open to the front, so we ask that you dress warmly to protect yourself from the evening chill.

Bookings for our hospitality experiences will be based on shared tables with other guests.
