Queen's House Greenwich
Designed by Inigo Jones, the Queen's House was the first purely classical Renaissance building in Britain. Begun in 1616 as a private royal retreat for James I's queen, Anne of Denmark, and completed in 1638 for Charles' queen, Henrietta Maria, it represents a turning point in English architecture. The house is now the principle showcase for the National Maritime Museum's world-class collection of fine art.
The National Maritime Museum holds the finest and largest collection of marine pictures and portraiture in the world, including master-works by artists such as Gainsborough, Reynolds, Hogarth, Turner and the van de Veldes.
