Not only Italians understand about 'vistas', but Englishmen, apparentely, too. See evidences on the photos attached. No fees
had a nice walk round the outside and will have to go back when it is open again. Still had the Maritime Museum and Observatory to visit in the immediate vicinity so still worth going to Greenwich :-)

We decided to leave this visit to last and actually ended up making a hasty step. Worth a stop because it is the only building left of the old Tudor palace designed by Inigo Jones in 1,700 Greenwich Palace. With its neoclassical and white coloring is a glance beautiful in contrast with the green of the nearby meadows. Inside there is an exhibition of paintings from the Maritimes Museum If this review did you like, you can read about my many other out of London and I'm glad a click on: is it useful?show original
Not as grand as the Royal Naval College just nearby, but a lovely structure perhaps best known for the glorious tulip staircase. It is a stunning piece of architecture with highly stylist wrought iron balusters. Many believe it to be haunted. Open to the public for free - just check the hours.
I've been a couple of times with my daughter when they've hosted special events (Halloween .. something else that I can't properly remember). Both times they've had some enjoyable activities for the kids, including videos and the like that you can download when you get back home. Definitely worth a visit if you can arrange something with school friends.
Wonderfull place in a quite unique location. Inside we can breathe history, culture and glory, meanwhile our eyes are looking the past
Beautiful place at the base of Greenwich Park. Amazing architecture as you walk through the colonnade and are left with a view of the historical Greenwich.
If you're on your way from Greenwich to the observatory, this is a nice stop. It has some interesting art, and has good activities for the kids. The staff are happy to help, so it was a nice experience all round for us.
