The Queen's house, Greenwich

The Queen's house in Greenwich was once a richly furnished summer villa for Queen Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles 1. It is now an elegant setting for fine art and entertaining.



Its main highlights are

The Great Hall - a spectacular setting with an elaborately tiled marble floor.

The Tulip Stairs - the first spiral stairway in Britain with no central support column.

Photography is prohibited inside the Queens house, so no pictures :)
