Discover the rich history of the
Royal Borough of Greenwich

Visit Charlton House & Gardens

Explore and enjoy the rich history of Greenwich, whether you're visiting monuments and buildings with four centuries of history, discovering the stories of the borough through archives and museum collections, or booking your next celebration or day out.

Greenwich Heritage works to ensure the future of the Royal Borough's heritage, whilst bringing that heritage to life for everyone, through exhibitions, tours, walks, and activities for all ages.

Charlton House & Gardens

Built between 1607 and 1612 for the tutor to Prince Henry of Wales, son of James I, Charlton House is one of the U.K.'s finest examples of a Jacobean manor home.

The building has been home over the years to nobility, prime ministers, and, in times of trial, medical centres. Now a historical landmark and attraction, the House & Gardens are regularly open to the public for lunch and tea, events for all ages, private hire, and self-guided tours.
