Ranger's House, London

4.4
Ranger's House is a medium-sized red brick Georgian mansion in the Palladian style, adjacent to Greenwich Park in the south east of London. It is situated in Blackheath and backs directly onto Greenwich Park. Previously known as Chesterfield House, its current name is associated with the Ranger of Greenwich Park, a royal appointment; the house was the Ranger's official residence for most of the 19th century. There is a rose garden behind it, and since 2002 it has housed the Wernher Collection of art.

  • 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.
