Nelson Room at the Painted Hall


nelsonroom_replicacolumn

The Nelson Room is so called because it is where Nelson’s coffined body was stored from 23 December 1805 until the start of his lying in state in the Painted Hall early in January 1806.

In the room you will find a small gallery relating to Nelson in Greenwich.

A window in the Nelson Room overlooking the King William Courtyard is an ideal viewing point for the Nelson Pediment. There’s also a small replica of the statue of Nelson which is on top of the column in Trafalgar Square.

If the Nelson Room is not open, speak to a guide or ask when a tour will next take place.

[With particular thinks to Pieter van der Merwe]
