Built around 1365, the Jewel Tower is one of only two buildings from the medieval Palace of Westminster to survive the fire of 1834. Known as the ‘King’s Privy Wardrobe’, the tower was used to safeguard Edward III’s personal treasures and later, housed the records of the House of Lords and served as a testing facility for the British Empire.
Venture inside this three-storeyed L-shaped tower to see where the royal treasures were kept as well as displays covering three floors of history. Discover a remarkable model of the palace and rooms re-creating the lives of a medieval treasury official and an 18th century clerk. Admire the ornate 14th century ribbed vault, the excavated medieval moat around the tower and the 18th century brick parapets and Portland limestone windows.
Ranger’s House is a beautiful Georgian villa gracing the fringe of Greenwich Park. In its 300-year history, it has been home to the honorary Ranger of Greenwich Park, military officers, aristocrats and royals. However, its recognised today as the home of one of the greatest private art collections in Europe.
Curated by diamond magnate Sir Julius Wernher in 1900, there are over 700 medieval and early modern European works of art on display across a dozen panelled interiors. Discover paintings by Italian masters such as Botticelli, Georgian portraits by Reynolds, Gothic ivory carvings, French tapestries and enamels, fine Renaissance jewellery and 18th century porcelain.
