The Queens House

Romney Road, Greenwich, LONDON, SE10 9NF

This beautiful royal palace was commissioned for James I's wife Anne of Denmark, but it was under the direction of Charles I's queen, Henrietta Maria, that it was finished in 1638. Regarded as England's first truly classical building, Inigo Jones' Palladian masterpiece features the elegant Tulip Stairs and the awe-inspiring Great Hall, a perfect 40 foot cube. It also features the National Maritime Museum's world-class collection of paintings, including works by Dutch maritime artists the Van de Veldes, who had a studio here from the 1670s. Please note: The Queen's House will be closed for refurbishment from 27 July 2015, re-opening on 4 July 2016. Photo copyright - National Maritime Museum.
