The Queen’s House is located in the grounds of the National Maritime Museum and Greenwich Park and is overlooked by the Royal Observatory. It was designed by Inigo Jones and can be easily missed on a visit to Greenwich. There is no admission fee to...More

Well worth a visit. Friendly and informative staff. Newly decorated ceiling very interesting. Really pleased, having a WW1 interest, to see the portraits of various WW1 admirals. Poignant to see the pictiure of Jack Cornwell.

Amazingly, you can visit the Queen's House for free. I ( and a few other people) spent a couple of minutes trying to get a nice picture of the Tulip stars.. All the artwork was very nice indeed!

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park
and a number of related buildings (and one world
