Visitor Centre

Acclaimed illustrator Nick Ellwood is returning to the Old Royal Naval College with his inimitable style in a brand-new exhibition. The exhibition will consist of beautifully hand-drawn originals bringing to life some of the historical figures and quirky stories from the past 500 years at the Old Royal Naval College, from kings to sailors, gods to astronomers and more.

Make sure to pick up our brand new activity guide for children, designed by Nick Ellwood, to help them further explore the magnificent Old Royal Naval College buildings and grounds, and dive deeper into the stories with fun activities and puzzles to complete at home.
