Greenwich Heritage Centre

Heritage and History
Charlton House

Greenwich Heritage Centre, has been presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform its offer into a twenty-first century, and beyond, visitor experience.

To develop these plans Greenwich Heritage Centre is now closed for a period of redevelopment. This period will see Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust move the museum  to Charlton House.

The Trust plans to continue its public programme and resume the research enquiry service in October 2018, with public access by appointment following soon after, once the collections are settled into their new home. The museum and archive team will also relocate to Charlton House.

The collections are cared for by Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust. With thousands of images of the borough, objects, maps, parish records, geology, paintings, postcards, books and newspapers, the Centre has a vast and wonderful collection representing the Royal Borough’s rich history.

The Trust tells stories about the Royal Borough through objects, paintings, prints, drawings, maps, photographs and deeds.

Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust is supported by a community of passionate individuals dedicated to preserving the rich history and buildings within the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
