Temporary Closure

Following Government advice in response to the COVID-19 situation, our site is temporarily closed until further notice.

We are continually monitoring developments and advice from the government and Public Health England, so please check our website for further updates. We'll be sharing some of our heritage and stories of the site on our digital channels, so whilst our gates are shut, there is still access to the Old Royal Naval College.
