Wernher Collection at Ranger’s House

The London Pass London Pass Benefits: Access to the Wernher Collection at Ranger's House Normally £9.50 - Included with London Pass

Visit this Georgian villa and admire around 700 medieval and Renaissance masterpieces collected by Sir Julius Wernher

Built in 1723, Ranger’s House is an elegant redbrick Georgian villa on the edge of Greenwich Park with the Meridian Line passing through its grounds. While the history of the building itself is worth investigation in its own right it is its role as possibly the finest Greenwich art gallery that it is most widely known.

Ranger’s House is home to the Wernher Collection – a magnificent collection of medieval and Renaissance works of art assembled by the diamond magnate Sir Julius Wernher in the late 19th and early 20th century.

The London Wernher collection features nearly 700 works of art including early religious paintings and Dutch Old Masters, minute carved Gothic ivories and Renaissance treasures. Each beautifully crafted object reveals as much about art as it does about Sir Julius’ eclectic tastes, and his place within the collecting world of the nouveaux riches in late 19th century London.

"We found that the things we wanted to see in London were covered by the London Pass. We heard of the London Pass when we were arranging our BritRail Pass and we investigated how much it would cost to see everything we wanted. We found the convenience of the pass and the cost far outweighed just showing up at the venues and lining up for tickets. We even went to a few venues we didn't have on our "must see" list. Great value...would purchase again & recommend it to others."
