It’s not a bad place to visit if you’re in the neighborhood with some time to pass. Some interesting nautical pictures on the walls was the only thing memorable about it.

The Queen's House is not very impressive. The architecture is decent and there are nice paintings, but otherwise, there's not much there. It's pretty small, so you don't have to spend much time there. If you're the area go ahead and check it out, but...More
