Old Royal Navy College

Recommendation by Lemi

Watch the royals and their guests come and go at Buckingham Palace’s Courtyard—oh wait, it’s the Old Royal Naval College! A UNESCO World Heritage site, the complex of historical buildings located at the heart of Maritime Greenwich held an important role in English past. It was the birthplace of the Tudors (Henry VIII, Mary I, and Elizabeth I), the whereabouts of Anne Boleyn during her arrest, a stage for Shakespeare’s plays, and the Royal Hospital for Seamen before it became the one of the best naval schools in Europe from 1873 to 1997. To resemble the actual yard, a portico was attached to the Old Royal Naval College’s facade, so look closely to see its similarity to the show’s driveway. Open daily, the structure also houses a beautiful Painted Hall and a neo-classical Chapel.
