Explore the beautiful buildings and grounds of the Old Royal Naval College to walk in the footsteps of movie stars, once the home of Greenwich Palace, birthplace of Henry VIII and where Nelson lay in state.

You can spot Greenwich in all kinds of movies going back as far 1958 when Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman filmed scenes in the Painted Hall for the romantic comedy ‘Indiscreet’.
