  • The Ranger's house is one of Greenwich's lesser known treasures, but one not to be missed, especially if your interests are more on the artistic treasures and less on the astronomy and naval artifacts. The house is an easy 10 minute stroll through the park from the top of the Observatory hill. However, make sure you have a good map as the relatively direct path is not well signed! The museum has one of those remarkable collections that concentrates more on quality than quantity. They have a wide variety of pieces, paintings, tapestries, jewelry, wood carvings to name but a few. However, they don't have a huge collection of anything, just a few very special pieces of each type so that it is easy to really enjoy each individual masterpiece.
  • Fantastic house and contents. Needs a visit to see for yourself. It's all amazing but the detail in some of the jewellery and carvings of the woodworks needs to be seen.
