  • 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!  more »

  • I've been to a couple of exhibitions here and both times found them to be very intriguing and varied in the era and style as giving me various emotional and intellctual responses. Some favourite pieces of mine on a recent visit were are a poster for astronomy lectures at a working mens club and a photograph produced without a camera! Fascinating! I get a little lost around the house sometimes but I won't hold that against Inigo Jones, especially in such a beautiful building.
  • It's kind of a labyrinth with all the little (and not so little) rooms. Lots of paintings, photos on the walls to tell you a bit of history. Nice photo opportunities, vast spaces. The tulip staircase is a must although it turned out it has nothing to do with tulips.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Newly refurbished museum with a range of items on display. Quite a focus on Greenwich and it's history. Wheelchair accessible with lifts. And the tulip staircase is a must seen.
