Built somewhere between 1616 and 1635, Queen’s House was once a popular haunt for royalty, and its luxurious architecture still marks it out as one of Greenwich Park’s most beautiful buildings. Inigo Jones originally designed the building for King James I’s wife, Anne of Denmark, and its importance to architectural history in Britain is worth noting, due to it being the first classical building to be constructed here.
Queen’s House is also filled with breath taking works of art from painters such as Gainsborough, Lowry, Canaletto, Reynolds, Hogarth and Stubbs. What attracts people from far and wide is Richard Wright’s Turner Prize winning gold leaf ceiling design, which is truly a sight to behold.
