Where will our group have lunch and who will cater for us?

Your group can enjoy a delicious lunch or cream tea in the King William Undercroft. With its elegant columns and vaulted ceiling, it provides the perfect space when visiting as part of a group. 

It is located beneath the Painted Hall and was originally designed as a dining hall for Greenwich Pensioners when the Old Royal Naval College (ORNC) was the Royal Hospital for Seamen. It has provided a venue for entertaining and dining since 1750s and today it is run by Ampersand.

Ampersand specialise in providing conference and banqueting, hospitality services to cultural, arts and exhibition locations throughout the country, including the ORNC.

Can we purchase souvenirs to remind us of our visit?

Is there disabled access to the ORNC?

We can arrange for dedicated wheelchair assistants to help your group during their guided tours at no extra charge. The Jacobean Undercroft is inaccessible to wheelchair users.

If you or a member of your group requires access provision, please tell us in advance and we can have trained staff available to help you. Please call 020 8269 4799 or email

Can I visit the ORNC with a self-guided group?

We welcome self-guided groups to the ORNC, but you must book in your group before your visit. All groups of 15 more people are required to book in advance as the Painted Hall and Chapel get very busy and groups may be turned away. A permit will be issued on arrival in the Painted Hall. We ask for £15 from all groups of 8 to 15 people and £30 for groups of 16 to 30 people.
