Visiting Safely

Our visitors’ safety and enjoyment onsite is our highest priority and for that reason we are maintaining sensible measures to the way we operate tours and interactions during your visit. Public tours will be opened-up to groups of 10 people and we recommend that you wear a face covering on tours and while visiting any of our indoor spaces.


In a continuance of safe practice, no cash payments will be accepted, and hand-sanitising stations will remain around the grounds for you to use. We encourage you to maintain a safe distance and consider the needs of your fellow visitors and our staff.


We recommend that you book online in advance of your visit, not only to ensure we can manage capacity in our indoor spaces, but also to secure your place on one of the Painted Hall talks, grounds or film tours on the day you come.


The wide-open spaces and stunning views at the Old Royal Naval College mean that whether you are inside or out, you and your friends and family will have a great day here.

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, but for the avoidance of any doubt, photography/filming on our site is at the discretion of the organisation and we ask that you respect our site and staff. 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.
