“Sir Christopher Wren's riverside masterpiece: a British landmark encompassing some of the finest buildings in the world” Visit London

Why we love it

The Old Royal Naval College is the architectural centrepiece of Maritime Greenwich, a World Heritage Site in Greenwich, London. Once a Royal Navy training establishment between 1873 and 1998, it's most likely recognised today as the filming locations for blockbusters such as Skyfall and Les Miserables. As VisitEngland’s Large Visitor Attraction of the Year, this extraordinary cultural destination is certainly worth a visit.

What's Included?

  • Enjoy a private one hour guided tour of Old Royal Naval College for two
  • Personalise your visit by picking a theme: film & TV locations, an architecture tour, a history tour, general tour
  • Gain access into the Painted Hall and Victorian Skittle Alley

Description

The Old Royal Naval College is a grand focal point of the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage site. Originally designed as a Royal Naval Hospital for retired sailors, the College was the work of legendary architect Sir Christopher Wren.

In 1873 Wren's building, which was built on the site of the Greenwich Palace - the birthplace of Henry VIII, became the Royal Naval College. Discover this impressive architectural feat littered with history on a private one-hour guided tour. Tailor your experience to your interests - focusing on history, architecture, film & TV locations, or a more general tour.

Gain access into the majestic Painted Hall. Sir James Thornhill’s masterpiece features 40,000 square feet of beautifully painted walls and ceilings, including what is referred to as "Britain's Sistine Chapel" a Baroque masterpiece that took 19 years to complete.

Venture into The Skittle Alley, once used by the navy pensioners and then the Royal Navy. The original skittles and wooden practice cannonballs are still in tact.

The perfect day out to become acquainted with a quintessential British landmark and some of the finest buildings in the world.
