Old Royal Naval College

See this beautiful riverside landmark in the heart of Greenwich

With over 1 million visitors a year, the Old Royal Naval College is one of Britain’s biggest and most famous riverside landmarks. In 2011 they were officially recognised as a member of the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions (ALVA).

Their mission is to maintain the site’s exceptional architecture, interiors and grounds, which include the Painted Hall, Chapel and Discover Greenwich, for future generations.

We aim to provide access and enjoyment to a wide and diverse audience and offer an inspiring visitor experience in particular through our dynamic events, exhibitions and learning programmes.
