On foreground: The Old Royal Naval Academy, Greenwich.
Royal Naval College, Greenwich, was a Royal Navy training establishment between 1873 and 1998, in the centre of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site in London. It provided a number of courses for naval officers including being home to the Royal Navy's staff college, the staff course providing advanced training for mid-ranking officers.
The buildings were originally constructed to serve as the Greenwich Hospital, designed by Christopher Wren, and built between 1696 and 1712. The hospital closed in 1869.
