Queen's House

The Queen's House (designed by architect Inigo Jones for Anne of Denmark (the queen of King James I of England) and afterwards used by Queen Henrietta Maria) is one of the most important buildings in British architectural history. Located in Greenwich, London on a site between Greenwich Park and the Greenwich Hospital next to the river Thames, it is a gleaming white Palladian villa linked by colonnades to the National Maritime Museum buildings either side.
