A DAY IN ROYAL GREENWICH
A day in Royal Greenwich is being arranged to explore the principal monuments and townscape that comprise this World Heritage Site, at the centre of what became a Royal Borough in February this year. We will visit the Queen’s House designed by Inigo Jones for James I’s Queen Anne of Denmark and completed for Charles I’s Queen Henrietta Maria, friend to Marie de Rohan, duchesse de Chevreuse, the Royal Observatory founded by Charles II in 1675 – the home of the world’s Prime Meridian and of Greenwich Meantime, and the Old Royal Naval College, one of the country’s finest compositions of Baroque architecture, designed by Wren, Hawksmoor and Vanbrugh.
The group will leave by boat from Embankment Pier at 9.33am with the tour ending in Greenwich at approximately 4.30pm. Lunch will be provided in the College’s former Wardroom in the undercroft of the Great Hall – the King William Undercroft. We will have guides on our walk and at all the major buildings.
The cost of the day is £ 55 per person, which includes entrance to all the buildings, guides, a two-course lunch with wine and coffee. NB There will be a fair amount of walking on this day out.

The Friends of Castle Sychrov (UK) is a Registered Charity which raises funds by lectures, visits and trips to help support the castle and park in Bohemia, Czech Republic. It was, until 1945, the home of the main Rohan family line and Grafin Marguerite Kottulinsky-Rohan is the founder of The Friends.
