Visit: Admiralty House
- Admiralty House |
Thursday 25 February and Wednesday 10 March
Admiralty House was built in 1786–8 from the designs of Samuel Pepys Cockerell, Surveyor to the Board of Admiralty, and has some fine Neoclassical interiors. It was the residence of the First Lord of the Admiralty until 1964 and is still a government building, rarely open to the public. The house contains lofty rooms, planned on a generous scale, with many features of decorative interest. The main rooms are hung with paintings by William Hodges, Joshua Westall and others, and record voyages to places around the world. Visitors will be taken on a guided tour by Charlotte Henwood, Curator of the Ministry of Defence Art Collection.
Please note: Admiralty House is a government building, so visitors will need photo ID to gain entry.
