Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, and decorated by Sir James Thornhill, the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College is known as the UK's own Sistine Chapel. This masterpiece is once again open following an £8.5-million conservation project. This masterpiece, set within London's most beautiful locations, is the perfect place for groups to visit.  

Surrounded by beautiful baroque architecture and stunning grounds, set in the heart of historic Greenwich, the Old Royal Naval College is steeped in history.
