“ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES is Maritime Greenwich. Over the Christmas Holiday, I went back to see the Armada portrait, the Queen’s House and the Emma Hamilton exhibit. When I left the Queen’s House, I was caught up in the atmospheric landscape. The sun was reflecting on the clouds and buildings through the mist and fog.”
—Patricia Peek

The picture is taken facing south from the banks of the Thames. Standing on the sight of the old Greenwich Palace, the “new” palace (which soon became a home for disabled seaman) was completed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1696. The college and its famous chapel are open daily and offer free admission. It is also home to the Discover Greenwich Visitors Centre.
