Beautiful Rooms - The Great Hall, Queen’s House

Monday, November 9, 2020 - 16:45

There are few more beautiful rooms in the UK than the Great Hall in the Queen's House. With its original black and white geometric marble floor, this room was the heart of Queen Anne of Denmark's palace which started construction in 1616.

The Queen's House was the first classical architectural structure built in Britain and the Great Hall is a perfect 40ft cube with elegant arched windows looking straight out onto the River Thames and the London skyline. 

Originally, Florentine artist Orazio Gentileschi created a series of nine paintings for the Great Hall ceiling which were removed from the Queen's House in 1708 and given to Queen Anne's favourite, Sarah Churchill. In 2016, Royal Museums Greenwich commissioned Turner Prize winner Richard Wright to create the intricate and unique contemporary work in gold leaf which adorns the ceiling now.

Suitable for weddings, dinners and receptions as well as conferences and concerts, we defy anyone to step into this room and not be wowed by the elegance and beauty of the hall's features.
