Address Old Royal Naval College King William Walk, Greenwich, London SE10 9NN, UK

The site of the Old Royal Naval College is particularly important in British history.

From 1498 to 1694, the site housed the Greenwich Palace, where Henry VIII and his daughters, Queen Mary I and Queen Elizabeth I were born.

Having fallen into ruin during the English Civil War (1642-1651), the palace was used as a cookie factory and then as a prisoner of war camp. It was demolished although some remains remain in the Painted Hall.

A new building was constructed under Charles II just after the Civil War but the lack of means did not allow to elaborate the building that we can admire today.

Mary II had the Royal Hospital built as early as 1694 to reflect Britain’s wealth and power as a maritime power.

Including a nursing home as well as a retirement home for naval veterans, the site also served as a training ground for nearly 27,000 officers from 1873 to 1997.

Since 1998, the Old Royal Naval College has welcomed tourists, nearly 1.2 million a year, a music conservatory, a university and is also a popular film location.
