Greenwich was for centuries the ceremonial entrance to the capital from the river. It was the site of one the most important Tudor palaces, and later of the Royal Naval Hospital where a collection of the greatest names in English architecture worked, including Wren and Hawksmoor. The presence of the palace, and then the sailors ensured a rich and various history for the town.

Greenwich has the character of a village, with its compact riverside location. But this was the gateway to London, and possesses some the finest buildings in England. In the middle of the hospital is the Queen’s House, which introduced Italian renaissance architecture to England, and in the park is the Royal Observatory, where Charles II’s Astronomer Royal John Flamsteed mapped the night sky.

Explore the blueprint of Tudor Greenwich Palace, find out about Greenwich’s importance in the history of science, and its deep connections with British naval history.
