Why We Love It

  • The Painted Hall is often referred to as Britain's Sistine Chapel and was painted in the 18th century by James Thornhill, who spent almost 20 years working on its over 4000 square feet of decoration -- it reopened in early 2019 after a 2-year £8.5million refurbishment
  • The Daily Telegraph calls it "Britain's best example of the painted ceiling", praising the "immensely impressive" and "brilliant" artwork
  • You can expect "vivid colour and incredible detail", says Sky News
  • With your ticket you can also visit the Victorian Skittle Alley at the Old Royal Naval College -- you can even use a practice cannon ball to try and knock down the original wooden skittles
  • Stuck for gift ideas this Christmas? We have hundreds of dining, spa, activity, theatre and hotel deals to inspire you
