This historic building was built in 1723, and includes over 700 masterpieces from the Renaissance period, as well as Gothic carvings and assorted treasures.

The building is set in the midst of some beautiful gardens, just by Greenwich Park. So if you are looking for a rare glimpse into the lifestyle and tastes of some of the city’s most important historical figures, then the Wernher Collection is definitely a fantastic place to start.
