Located in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage site at Greenwich and a former royal palace, the Queen’s House is an elegant venue for corporate dinners and private entertainment which require an air of distinction. Built in the 17th century by Inigo Jones for Queen Anne (wife of James 1) for hosting sumptuous parties, it was the first wholly classical building of its kind in England and is regarded as one of the most important buildings in the history of British architecture. The great hall features the original black and white marble flooring and commanding views over the River Thames. The orangery and south parlours have views over Greenwich Royal Park and are an ideal entry point for reception drinks. After dinner guests can enjoy private telescope viewings or retreat to the undercroft for dancing or post-dinner drinks.
