Old Royal Naval College (ORNC)

King William Walk. (Open Map)


The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, designed by Christopher Wren, is a stunning example of baroque architecture. Its sprawling grounds are open to the public, and visitors can take a tour of them when they buy a ticket for the Painted Hall, described as the UK's Sistine Chapel due to its magnificent 18th-century art covering the walls from floor to ceiling. The neoclassical Chapel of St Peter and St Paul is also located on the grounds. Home to the University of Greenwich and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the college is a must-visit in London.
