The painted hall, Greenwich - open daily, free
Extraordinary narrative ceiling painting and murals by Sir James Thornhill - far larger than the Cistine Chapel (painted 1708-1727). Thornhill (father-in-law to William Hogarth) also painted murals in Saint Paul's Cathedral. There is much more to see at Greenwich including the Painted Chapel, and the Queen's House (built by Inigo Jones and of great architectural significance), which houses a collection of paintings.
