Old Royal Naval College is a group of classical-style buildings by the Thames. They look more like a country's seat of government or the parliament more than a school. The grounds and lawns are immaculately maintained. The Painted Hall must be one of the most beautiful halls in all of England. Its murals are colorful and tell interesting stories. The gleaming candelabras on oak tables add to the grandeur. I love how the hall opened all the windows to let sunlight shine on the lovely marble floor. Overall, you could spend a really nice day just taking photos of the exterior of this lovely part of Greenwich. Movie fans will love the fact that it has been the location for both the Golden Compass and Thor: The Dark World.
Forget wasting time standing in a long line for the Greenwich Meridian and spend more of your day touring this remarkable educational/cultural pocket by the river.
