Discover the UK’s Sistine Chapel: the Painted Hall at Greenwich’s Old Royal Naval College, an epic 18th-century masterpiece has now reopened following an £8.5 million makeover. Painted between 1707 and 1726, the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College is Britain’s largest painted ceiling and hides many surprises. The tour is delivered by an expert tour guide who has been trained in audio-description by VocalEyes. The tour includes handling objects inspired by the painting and will be followed by a workshop session in the Clore Learning Centre, where visitors will be able to explore the past and present lives of the Painted Hall.
