In 1616 James I’s wife Anne of Denmark commissioned Inigo Jones to design her a new pavilion at Greenwich. It would become the first fully Classical building seen in England.
From 1673 studio space in the House was allocated to the van de Veldes, father and son Dutch marine artists.
In 1805, George III granted the Queen’s House to the Royal Naval Asylum charity.
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, corporate and private events.
