Greenwich Palace

The Palace of Placentia, also known as Greenwich Palace, was an English royal residence that was initially built by Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, in 1443. It was located at Greenwich on the bank of the River Thames, downstream from London. The original residence was extensively rebuilt around 1500 by Henry VII. In 1660, it was demolished by Charles II to make way for a proposed new palace, which was never constructed. Nearly forty years later, the Greenwich Hospital (now called the Old Royal Naval College) was built on the site. Date: 1875

EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph, taken in 1875, captures the ruins of Greenwich Palace, also known as The Palace of Placentia. Originally built in 1443 by Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, the palace was located on the bank of the River Thames in Greenwich, downstream from London. The initial structure was extensively rebuilt around 1500 by Henry VII, who transformed it into a grand royal residence. However, in 1660, the palace was demolished by Charles II to make way for a proposed new palace, which was never constructed. Nearly forty years later, in 1696, the Greenwich Hospital, now known as the Old Royal Naval College, was built on the site. This historic photograph offers a glimpse into the past, revealing the rich history and architectural beauty of this once magnificent English royal residence.
