Greenwich Parks History

In 1427 the land was inherited by the Duke of Gloucester who was the brother of Henry V. Since then the park has been associated with royalty.

King Henry VIII was born here along with his daughters Mary I and Elizabeth I. Tragically his son Edward VI also died here before his 16th birthday.

King James II was the last monarch to use Greenwich and the palace site was given as a hospital for sailors. The Royal Naval Hospital was renamed the Royal Naval College in 1873.

Greenwich Park played its part in World War II when anti-aircraft guns were set up in the park.

Greenwich Park is home to many historic buildings such as the National Maritime Museum, the Queens House, the Royal Naval College and the Old Royal Observatory.
