The Queen's House in Greenwich is an art museum with a maritime theme. The house is a lovely setting for the paintings.
To many visitors to Greenwich The Queen's House is a place you see in the background or in general views. It provided the backdrop to the equestrian events at the London Olympics and Paralympics, and can be seen from the Thames between the two towers of the Old Royal Naval Hospital. Infact, the reason the latter is in two symmetrical... More
The Queen's House is perhaps now known for being the picturesque backdrop during Equestrian Dressage Events at the 2012 London Olympics. But more than that, it is the 'jewel in the crown' of Royal Museums Greenwich and currently shows a small selection of the National Maritime Museum's excellent painting collection. A programme of contemporary work is also being planned. Despite... More

Dont bother with the maritime museum which is a disappointment - go to this place instead - theres some iconic paintings on show in a lovely buildig - this place is as good as the museum next door is bad.

If you love your naval history, the Queen's House is for you. Great paintings on display in this important and first of it's type of stately 'house'. If one finds oneself in Greenwich visit Queen's House. We loved all references to Captain Cook!
Some artwork and the grounds were quite impressive, but other than that, no more than a 15-minute attraction.
If you're in Greenwich; this place is worth a visit. But unless you're interested in naval history and naval paintings; it's rather boring and plain. One must-do it here is to see Turner's famous painting "The Battle of Trafalgar" which is located at the ground floor and you're allowed to take pictures. The place is worth half an hour of... More
