Step inside the grand Painted Hall and discover the venue dubbed the UK's very own Sistine Chapel!
Located in the heart of Greenwich, inside the Old Royal Naval College, lies the Painted Hall and it's magnificent Baroque interior. The venue's intricate decor, from floor to ceiling, will have you mesmerised from the moment you enter. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the Painted Hall reopened in 2019 following renovations, and has since become a popular visitor attraction for its beautiful artwork. Arguably its biggest masterpiece is its ceiling designed by Sir James Thornhill in the 18th century - which took him 19 years to plan and perfect!
You can also discover the picturesque grounds that surround the Old Royal Naval College and its fascinating history. Learn how it was the birthplace of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I, and how it was originally built in the 17th century as a home for returning marines.

What is a self-guided tour?
A self-guided tour is a type of tour where visitors explore a destination on their own using an audio guide or a map. Unlike a guided tour, visitors are not led by a tour guide and are free to choose their own pace and explore the sights that interest them the most. Self-guided tours offer more flexibility and freedom to visitors. They are a popular option for those who prefer to explore a destination independently.
Is a Walking Tour suitable for all ages?
The walking tour is suitable for all ages, but keep in mind that it involves a fair amount of walking and standing, so participants should be able to walk for at least 2.5 hours. Additionally, wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing a water bottle can help ensure that you're comfortable throughout the tour.
What is a Multilingual Audio tour?
A multilingual audio tour is a type of tour that provides visitors with audio guides in multiple languages. Visitors can use headphones to listen to the audio guide as they explore a destination, with the audio guide providing information about the sights, history, and culture of the area. The audio guides are typically pre-recorded and offer visitors the option to choose their preferred language.
