Queen Mary is a proud part of our local community, with a commitment to the area around us being in the roots of our institution. In 1887, Queen Mary began life as the People’s Palace, declared by Queen Victoria at the opening of the building to be “for the benefit of the people of east London”. We are proud of these roots and have built on this with our work in and alongside the local community.
