The Queen's House has so many stories to tell that it is worth visiting over and over again. First is the architecture - it is one of Britain's most important buildings in terms of royal patronage dragging the country from the gothic era into the...More

Popped in on a rainy afternoon and found it was fascinating. Can't believe it's free. So much to see. The Ramada painting was fabulous, especially after the film about it's renovation. Make an extra detour and visit.

Visited on a freezing post Christmas day. It wasn't what I thought basically an art gallery. Interesting Dutch seascape paintings & monarchs. Definitely a nautical theme which I enjoyed. There is a lift to all floors & a cloakroom if you ask. The Piece De...More

An interesting place to visit and it is free. They suggest a £4 donation to help with the upkeep of the building. You can also book to do a guided tour either at the National Maritime Museum (next door) or online. The cost for this...More

This attraction is really about three things - the Queen Elizabeth Armada Portrait, the fantastic architecture, and the naval history. Found ourselves spending 2 hours looking at 3 floors of this wonderful building and contents. All they ask for entry is a donation.

Where else would it be possible to visit such a marvellous building and enjoy the collections within completely free of charge? It had been some years since I had last visited the Queen's House and I was interested to see the changes that had occurred...More

If I am honest I prefer the house and it's location rather than it's contents. House in prime location flanked down to the Thames by the naval college. The house is now an art gallery which didn't really grip me but I did like the...More

Free attractions are my favorite. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to see everything in detail because we had to catch a boat back to Westminster. This attraction looks amazing from the outside, especially from the Royal Observatory hill but it is also amazing inside....More

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park
and a number of related buildings (and one world
famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World
Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a
