Old Royal Naval College

On the banks of the River Thames in Greenwich, this architectural masterpiece makes an inspiring and impressive backdrop for business meetings and events. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren and Nicholas Hawksmoor, this is a venue for all occasions, offering a very elegant space for networking events, drinks receptions, conferences, private dinners, awards presentations, product launches and training sessions.

Built in the 17th century, Admiral’s House is part of the oldest building of the Old Royal Naval College, secluded and peaceful with a timeless ambience. Whether you want just a room, or two rooms, or the whole house, this is the perfect venue for refined receptions, dinners and meetings. Large windows and high ceilings allow heaps of natural light to flood in and you’ll notice beautiful tiled floors and warm wood panelling.
