The Old Royal Naval College has the safety of our visitors at the forefront of all we do as we open our doors again on Thursday 3 December.

In line with London’s Tier 2 status, we will be reopening all of our buildings and expansive grounds with social distancing and ‘rule of 6’ guidelines in place, and we will continue to require that all visitors wear a face covering while indoors or on guided tours. We also ask that you only visit with members of your household or support bubble.
