Greenwich Heritage Centre is closed for a period of redevelopment. 


This period will see Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust move the museum and archive collections to a new store. As this move will take time to deliver, the Trust plans to continue its public programme and resume the research enquiry service in October 2018, with public access by appointment following soon after, once the collections are settled into their new home. The museum and archive team will be relocating to Charlton House. Find out more about us Flying the Nest.

In the meantime, if you have an urgent research enquiry please contact the team: To keep in touch with what’s happening, why not join our mailing list.
