The centrepiece of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, the classical buildings of the Old Royal Naval College were designed by England’s greatest architects and are considered amongst the finest in Europe. Featuring the sumptuous Painted Hall and the neo-classical Chapel, the site has seen a variety of uses, as Greenwich Palace, the Royal Naval Hospital of Seamen and then the Royal Naval College.
What kind of tourist/traveler are you?
I'm one of those who prefer - if time is limited - to walk around a new city rather than visit museums and art galleries (I've made exceptions, but if I'm in a new city for a couple of days I usually prefer to wander around and look at buildings and people). You can sure tell that 'I have a thing' for architecture ☺. This said, even during a very short trip to Prague I had to find time to visit the Alfons Mucha museum, and I also remember dragging a friend all the way to Bethnal Green (London) because missing the Childhood Museum was not an option...
There's no chance I'll ever miss a castle or an open church though. What's your favourite way to spend a few days in a new place?
