Discover the Painted Hall, one of the most iconic sights in London, located at the heart of the Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site. An awe-inspiring artwork covering 40,000 square feet of walls and ceiling recounting tales of kings and queens alongside mythological, historical, and allegorical characters.

Take an expert guided tour to explore Sir Christopher Wren’s stunning baroque architecture. The beautiful riverside location of the buildings and grounds tell five centuries of remarkable history, featuring an incredible cast of famous British figures, from Henry VIII and Elizabeth I to Vice-Admiral Lord Nelson. During your visit, try your hand at skittles in the Victorian skittle alley, seek out the newly refurbished Nelson Room telling the extraordinary tale of Nelson’s ‘lying in state’; or escape the crowds to discover the glorious Chapel of St Peter and Paul.

Named as possibly “the most popular filming location in the world”, by Empire Magazine, the Old Royal Naval College is the setting for hundreds of blockbuster films and TV series including Pirates of the Caribbean, Les Misérables, The Crown, and Poldark. Day tickets for the Old Royal Naval College include entry to the Painted Hall, the Chapel and Skittle Alley, use of multimedia guides (in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese Mandarin, German, and Japanese), and our ‘500 Years of History’ guided tours. On weekends tickets also cover film tours.
