It’s ceilings and walls are decorated with hundreds of figures from gods and monarchs to scientist and fantastic beasts. It was built for some of the poorest people in the country, for old and injured sailors retired from the British Navy.

Nowadays the Painted Hall is open to visitors free of charge. It is also used for t a venue for dinners and formal occasions and can accommodate up to 400 persons. It is available from 16.30 to 23.00 Monday to Sunday.
