The Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust (RGHT) looks after historic buildings like Charlton House & Gardens, Charlton Assembly Room, Tudor
Barn as well as war memorials.
We make sure the Borough’s heritage is cared for and available to everyone through exhibitions, tours, walks and activities and, at the moment, online activity. We also manage the Borough’s collections and archives.
Our collections include archaeology, natural and social history and a large photographic, print and art collection. We also have a wide variety of local history records, including many that are useful for researching your family history or where you live.
They are all housed in a new storage facility and research space in Charlton, which you can visit simply by making an appointment.
Charlton House is one of the finest surviving Jacobean manor houses in the country, built between 1607 and 1612. You can usually visit for free and discover its historic rooms, including the Minstrel Hall, Old Library and Long Gallery. You can also explore its walled gardens and grounds.
The historic rooms can also be booked for meetings, community groups and weddings, and there is a range of events and activities on offer for visitors, including families. Please contact us for more details.
