Our visitors’ safety is our highest priority, and we have made some changes to the way we are operating tours and interactions onsite. Tours are currently limited to 5 people, and you must wear a mask for the duration. Your guide will be wearing a visor and has adapted the tour to ensure social distancing can be adhered to. No cash payments will be accepted, and there are hand sanitising stations around the grounds for you to use.
Please book online in advance if you can, to minimise queuing and to ensure we can manage capacity in our indoor spaces. Please note, we are currently restricting ticket bookings to no more than 6 at a time to comply with government guidelines. Visitors are welcome to enjoy our grounds and buildings in line with government guidance, and we ask that groups of larger than 6 from different households do not gather together on our site.
Filming and Photography
We frequently get asked questions about what our rules are in relation to taking photographs or filming on site. We’ve created a page to answer any questions you might have. Have a read about our approach to filming and photography.
How to find us
Greenwich is a short journey away from Central London. The nearest station is Cutty Sark DLR and Greenwich Station (rail) is just eight minutes from London Bridge. Or you can travel the scenic way on a boat along the Thames to Greenwich Pier.
We are a short walk from the Cutty Sark DLR.
Our Visitor Centre is directly opposite the famous ship and you can wander through the grounds all day, every day.
