This is the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College BEFORE they started the renovation. Amazing Painted Ceiling by Sir James Thornhill in the early 18th Century. 
We were equipped to hard hats

We were given mirrors to view the painted ceiling
After a visit to the Maritime Museum and lunch we returned on the Thames Clipper
