A weekend behind the scenes at the Old Royal Naval College. Explore areas not open to the public, discovering the rich history that surrounds this corner of the Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Areas of the site usually closed to the public - the old victorian skittle alley and the elegant interior of Admiral's House - will open their doors, and special tours will run, allowing visitors to explore new areas of the site, such as the Jacobean Undercroft, a remnant of the old Tudor palace, and the instrument-filled Loggia of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Tours will be led by our expert guides.

The entire event is free, but tickets must be collected from the stand in the Grand Square.
