Greenwich, London


On these three one-day walking tours of the Royal Hospital and other buildings at Greenwich we celebrate the architecture of Sir Christopher Wren by looking at the buildings themselves. The Royal Hospital is an English Baroque masterpiece, but it forms an ensemble with nearby buildings such as the Queen’s House, Royal Observatory and St Alphege’s Church, that are almost unique in London in forming what feels like a coherent development.

Alongside the stunning work of Wren himself, the list of designers involved in the Hospital reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the most renowned seventeenth and eighteenth-century architects, all of whom either worked with Wren or were influenced by him. We will also look at the work of Inigo Jones in Greenwich to see how he influenced Wren. These are full day events, ending at 4pm.
