National Maritime Museum

The National Maritime Museum Tour is a great intensive on all things British and naval. The Museum itself is all about the past 500 years of British naval power and traditions.
Due to the philanthropy of Sammy Ofer, the Museum has been improved and expanded, These improvements include the very smart Museum cafe, where we pause half way through our tour for refreshments. Today the Museum has over 2 million artefacts and is the largest museum of its type in the world. Our tour includes Turner’s wonderful painting of the Battle of Trafalgar, which he completed in the 1820’s. The king at the time, who had the painting commissioned, was apparently not impressed with Turner’s realism depicting some of the horror of war.

We also are able to experience the Nelson, Navy and Nation gallery with its paintings, weapons and exhibitions – including the jacket Nelson was wearing the day of his death during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. He had been shot by a sniper and died hours later. . We also get to experience the Trade Winds gallery, which tells the story of the rise of the East India Company from its Royal Charter to its finally becoming immensely powerful, wealthy and corrupt. 

On this tour we also visit 'Inigo Jones's wonderful Queens House' containing many beautiful paintings including the famous Queen Elizabeth Armada portrait

“Our guide was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Would easily do another tour with Greenwich Royal Tours!”
