  • Loved it. Near maritime museum within Greenwich so already in a great place. Then inside great wall decorations, paintings and great building in general.
  • Lots more paintings than you'd think could fit, of many different styles and eras. Only complaint is that it's pretty maze-like and easy to get lost
  • There is a free tour twice a day. Go on it! The lady that runs the tour is very knowledgeable, with little stories to tell as you go around. As someone who doesn't know a lot about art, I'd have looked around the house and thought "oh nice pictures" but the tour adds so much more, I felt like I knew what I was looking at. Fantastic!
  • Great historical place with very friendly staff. Royal and naval art and history. Great day out
  • This looks and feels historic. It's like viewing the paintings as they might have first been seen
