Old Royal Naval College

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.

There are 6 rooms for hire within the Admiral’s House, with the largest, the Hardwick Room hosting 70 guests standing or seated. The two smallest rooms, the Yenn and the Kay are both perfect for distinguished executive meetings, seating a maximum of 15. The whole house gives capacity for 90 guests. The Queen Mary Undercrofts are ideal for conferences and larger receptions, with high vaulted ceilings and outside space for balmy evening drinks. These twin rooms can accommodate 290 people standing and 230 seated in theatre style, or 200 for dinner.

DDP’s include refreshments and lunches, a 6ft screen and LCD projector, and basic stationery. The professional team will assist with the planning and smooth running of your event, with details including state of the art audio-visual technology tailored to suit your requirements. Top class caterers will provide an outstanding range of dishes, whether it’s canapes, a finger buffet, or a scrumptious feast. All tastebuds will be satisfied!

The Old Royal Naval College is located just a short walk from Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich DLR and within walking distance of Greenwich station. There is paid car parking close by and riverboat services arrive regularly at Greenwich Pier, only 2 minutes away.
