28th Feb – Painted Ceiling, Greenwich

With our own special guide we’ll have the opportunity to view the recently restored Painted Ceiling in the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. This ceremonial dining room, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, has one of the largest

ceilings in Europe and is often referred to as the ‘Sistine Chapel of the UK’.

From Waterloo Station we’ll take the Jubilee line to North Greenwich station, then bus 188 (stop C) to Greenwich Museum opposite the Old Royal Naval College (7 stops). We’ll have tea/coffee and a pastry on arrival in the Painted Hall Undercroft Café before meeting our guide and viewing the Painted Ceiling.

You’ll then be free to view other areas of the Naval College open to the public and go into the Visitor Centre where The Old Brewery pub serves local beers and seasonal food (not included in the cost). Return to Waterloo by river on the Thames Clipper from Greenwich Pier to the London Eye (£3.65 with your Freedom Pass) or return to the main gate of the College for bus 188 which stops outside to take you back to North Greenwich station and the Jubilee line.

Date: Friday, 28 February
Meeting Time/Place: 10am for 10.15am,

Waterloo station opposite platform 1 Cost: £21.15
