History of Greenwich
The Palace of Placentia, built in the 15th century, gave the town its royal reputation and was the birthplace of many Tudors including Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. During the English Civil War, the palace was rebuilt as the Royal Naval College in 1873 and then became a military education organisation until 1998. It was then turned over to the Greenwich foundation and the building is now open to the public with parts of it being used by the University of Greenwich and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
The area represents an upper-class culture and exhibits grand architecture including Georgian period estates. It is also home to the National Maritime Museum due to its seafaring history.
