We visited the Painted Hall in Greenwich yesterday.
You climb 60 feet/ 18 metres and see London’s largest painted ceiling in every detail.
It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this great ceiling up close while it is undergoing conservation.
It definitely was a special moment!
If you visit London in the next 2 years then I definitely recommend this!

#LondonReviewed || @markhazeldine
Went to the #PaintedHall, Old Royal Naval College, #Greenwich... He created this incredible image by stitching 5 photos together. The reflection is caused by a mirrored table in the room which is designed to help you see the amazing ceiling that took 19 years to paint. It was commissioned by Sir Christopher Wren & Nicholas Hawksmoor, and painted by Sir James Thornhill (the guy who painted St. Paul's cathedral ceiling). // The hall is going to undergo renovations for the next 3 years starting at the end of September, so there's very little time left to see it without works going on! Go go! 👌🏼🇬🇧 || #thisislondon

This morning, I stopped by the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. The painted hall is being renovated at the moment with scaffoldings going all the way to the magnificent ceiling. Tours open tomorrow to take you there... The details are amazing. There even have mirrors - I put some on the floor to capture different angles. Do go!

Getting up close and personal with the spectacular Painted Hall ceiling in Greenwich today. Pretty cool benefit of conservation in action, high up on the scaffolding! #conservation #heritage #greenwich

Mirror image #paintedhallproject #paintedhall #greenwich up on the scaffold. Go and see - it's fab and helps support the £8.5m cost of the conservation work

Up close and personal with Queen Mary and King William #paintedhall #greenwich #conservation. £2m still needed to complete the project so go and support of you can whilst enjoying a close inspection of the ceiling

Bit of culture on a bank holiday Sunday #paintedhall #Greenwich

A restoration of magnificent frescoes in an old cathedral. A rare opportunity to climb newly constructed scaffolding placed for painstaking cleaning #paintedhall #london

It's (almost) summer in the city and that means...exam/show time for students😰: the @csm_news art show is on now!

Image here is a detail of the west wall of the Painted Hall showing palette and brushes next to the self portrait of the artist himself, Sir James Thornhill. If you're looking for an arty break from studying/central London this #BankHoliday, look no further than Greenwich and a Painted Hall Ceiling Tour: climb 60 feet and tour London's largest painted ceiling up close. Link in our bio.

Good luck students!
