Day out location essentials

The Queen's House, Greenwich, was commissioned by Anne of Denmark, wife of James I (reigned 1603 - 25). James was often at the Tudor Palace of Greenwich, where the Old Royal Naval College now stands - it was as important a residence of the early Stuart dynasty as it had been for the Tudors. Traditionally he is said to have given the manor of Greenwich to Anne in apology for having sworn at her in public, after she accidentally shot one of his favourite dogs while hunting in 1614. The 17th-century Queen's House represents a turning point in English architecture. It now showcases the Museum's fine-art collection and provides a unique venue for weddings and corporate events.
