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.

Hire the Admiral’s House

Capacity 90

Commissioned by Charles II as his new royal palace in 1660, The Admiral’s House is our oldest building, with views of the Thames and a regal yet intimate atmosphere.

Available for both the serious and the fun side of business, an excellent venue for high profile receptions and dinners or meetings, seminars, and conferences.

Here light and airy rooms benefit from natural daylight, double height ceilings, refined wooden panelling, and windows offering inspiring river views.

The Admiral’s House is not open to the public, so it can be yours exclusively for the day. Rooms can be booked on an individual basis or you can choose to hire the whole house for your exclusive use.

From a meeting for 18 to a seminar for 90, the house can host exceptional professional events. You can enjoy free use of the house to really make the most of a smaller scale conference or an away day, taking advantage of the ample break out space available and, in fine weather, the outdoor surroundings.
