Old Royal Naval College Free


The Old Royal Naval College is open daily and free to visit. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren it is one of London's most famous landmarks.

A short walk from Greenwich Pier and Cutty Sark DLR station it is the best place to begin your day in Greenwich.

Explore more than 500 years of history at our visitor centre, the starting point of our free tours. You can also book tickets for other attractions, shop for gifts and enjoy a delicious meal.

No visit would be complete without seeing the Painted Hall, one of Europe's greatest painted interiors. Admiral Nelson lay in state in this elaborately decorated banqueting hall after his death at the Battle of Trafalgar. It's truly breathtaking!
