Queen's House, Greenwich
Monday 20 April 2020

Please note - this visit has been cancelled because of the Coronavirus epidemic.

Refunds will be issued in due course.

Commissioned by Anne of Denmark, the wife of James I, and built between 1616 and 1638, the Queen's House was the first building in Britain built in the classical style, as well as the only part of the royal palace complex at Greenwich still standing. The house was recently restored in time for its 400th anniversary with the addition of a major commission by the Turner Prize-winning artist Richard Wright.

The tour will discuss the history of Greenwich from a royal residence to today, and guide you through the artwork on view, including works by Willem Van De Velde (both the Elder and Younger), J.M.W. Turner, Joshua Reynolds, William Hogarth and the Armada Portrait of Elizabeth I.
