Greenwich | Tudors to Windsors
Posted on May 26th, 2021
Little London Whispers has written about visiting Greenwich multiple times over the years. There is no better time to visit this Unesco World Heritage site here in London with the exhibitions they have on.
This week a new major exhibition opened Tudors to Windsors at The National Maritime Museum, and next week Gaia returns to the Painted Hall.
National Maritime Museum
Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits
This exhibition features over 150 works of art pooled from the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Museums at Greenwich.
Beautifully curated, the flow of the exhibition highlights the gorgeous details in the painting and history of art.
Spanning five centuries, it features works ranging from Sir Peter Lely to Cecil Beaton and Annie Leibovitz.
Our current Royal Family feature in painting, photography and mixed media ending the exhibition on a contemporary note.
This collaboration between the National Portrait Gallery and The National Maritime Museum has arranged a phenomenal exhibition.
The setting is perfect and I fully expect it to be the big hit it deserves. Opens 28 May. THIS EXHIBITION HAS NOW ENDED
Faces of a Queen : The Armada Portraits of Elizabeth I
Little London Whispers was blown away by this original exhibition. These are stunning historical portraits of Elizabeth I, and you have a unique opportunity to view all 3 portraits side by side. Free entry.
Just in time for half term, the Cutty Sark reopens with a new exciting ‘Cutty Sark Rig Climb Experience’. Visitors will be able to climb from the main deck up the ship’s rigging. Opens June 2021. LLW at the Cutty Sark
Luke Jerram’s Gaia returns to the Painted Hall on 31 May (THIS EXHIBITION HAS NOW ENDED) The stunning art work of ‘Earth” hangs in the central space. Book soonest to avoid disappointment. Read the Gaia blog post from the 2020 installation.
Greenwich is one of my favourite destinations in London. It is a cultural destination like no other. Take the new Uber boat and arrive alongside the Cutty Sark, and you are set. I have more tips on my Day Out in Greenwich which I have been told make all the difference to a good day! Y
