Indulge in our afternoon tea offering in historic Admiral’s House on selected Sundays. This exclusive setting is rarely open to the public and is one of the oldest buildings onsite, with views of the Thames and a regal yet intimate atmosphere.

Choose from a selection of delicate finger sandwiches, homemade scones with clotted cream and jam, and cakes and sweet treats. A wide selection of teas are available and delicious milkshakes for children; alternatively turn tea into a real celebration with chilled Prosecco or Champagne.

Tea will be served throughout the afternoon from midday onwards. As part of your visit to the Old Royal Naval College, please take the opportunity to purchase an annual pass to visit the Painted Hall, the Chapel or to take an architectural tour with one of our experienced guides.
