Ranger's House - World Heritage Site: i modi migliori per scoprire questo luogo di interesse e le attrazioni nelle vicinanze

La zona
Indirizzo
Quartiere: Greenwich
Il tempo del Meridiano di Greenwich inizia qui, ed è da qui che nasce in generale il concetto di tempo, istituito presso il Royal Observatory, solo uno dei numerosi edifici di interesse architettonico a Greenwich. In effetti, l'intero centro storico di Greenwich, il suo Royal Park e una serie di edifici connessi (oltre alla Cutty Sark, una delle navi più famose al mondo) costituiscono il sito patrimonio mondiale dell'UNESCO noto come Maritime Greenwich. Oggi un raggio laser viene diffuso nel cielo notturno dall'osservatorio per segnare la posizione del meridiano. Tra le varie audaci integrazioni del XXI secolo ritroviamo attrazioni quali il complesso di intrattenimento O2 (precedentemente conosciuto come il Millennium Dome) e le cabinovie che offrono un trasporto panoramico attraverso il Tamigi tra North Greenwich e le Royal Docks.

Listed as a built heritage site in the United Kingdom in 1951, Ranger’s House served, as its name suggests, as the ranger’s house for Greenwich Royal Park. Medium-sized red-brick Georgian mansion, built c. 1722–23 at the request of Vice-Admiral Francis Hosier (1673–1727), in the Palladian style, to designs by the British architect John James (≈1673–1746 ), Ranger's House was later home to several famous people who added their personal touch to the building: in 1748, the British statesman and diplomat Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield (1694–1773); in 1784, Richard Hulse (1727-1805), deputy governor of the Hudson's Bay Company from 1799 to 1805; in 1888, British Army Marshal Garnet Joseph Wolseley, 1st Viscount Wolseley (1833–1913), etc. Ranger's House today houses the Wernher Collection, an art collection amassed by the businessman Sir Julius Charles Wernher, 1st Baronet (1850–1912) including more than 700 works exhibited in a dozen rooms: medieval sculptures, jewelry and enamels, paintings, including the “Madonna della Melagrana” created in the workshop of Sandro Botticelli , as well as French tapestries. Also worth seeing near this manor are the rose garden (in summer) and the avenue of cherry blossoms (in spring).

As a member of English Heritage decided to visit here .
I concentrated on the paintings
One of your male guides had an excellent background knowledge .
This enhanced the experience greatly.
Also I asked about a nearby spot to have my packed lunch.
The rose gardens was suggested and it was indeed a good choice.

Living locally I had meant to visit sooner but to kill some time today and take shade from the sun, I went this afternoon. It didn’t disappoint, such beautiful displays and really helpful staff. I loved the tiny gift shop too so could pick up some little treats ❤️ beautiful grounds/rose garden too. Perfectly spent afternoon! Highly recommend!

Spent a day in Greenwich and visited Ranger’s house. It is was only available for 3 guided tours throughout the day. It has an interesting history and is home to the Wernher collection of largely European paintings, ceramics exquisite jewellery, bronzes and carved ivory.
The rooms are exquisitely decorated to impress the former residents guests.
The guide was so enthusiastic with her guide book to refer to. It was a little hard to listen and reading the displays at the same time.
The exterior of the house was featured in the TV series - Bridgerton which made it even more impressive.
It is surrounded by a beautiful garden and being within Greenwich Park is close to the various attractions in the area.
The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable.
I highly recommend a visit. Although there is provision of colouring activities for children
it will have difficulty to keep the young children interested.

This a lovely collection shown by the National Trust. There are some wonderful pieces from an array of countries, centuries and styles. There are useful guide books in each room to bring the collection to life and to highlight some of the star items. Most definitely worth a visit if you are in the Greenwich area.

Dear Snowdrop, Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Rangers House but could I make a small correction, the property is managed by English Heritage.

This beautiful Georgian mansion, Ranger’s House, is located at the southern end of Greenwich Park in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It was built in 1723 as a lodging for the then keepers (or rangers) of Greenwich Park. The rangers were royal appointments that were essentially title only, and given this lavish grace-and-favour lodging for their tireless efforts. The last ‘ranger’ lived there in 1896.

Today the house contains the Wernher Collection, a stunning and lavish collection of works of art (including a painting attributed to Botticelli), divine French and German porcelain, ornate Renaissance jewellery encrusted with diamonds and other precious stones, and antiquities from Ancient Greece, all amassed by the 19th-century German businessman, Sir Julius Wernher. He apparently made his cash in the gold and diamond mines in South Africa.

The house is certainly worth a visit. It is under the management of English Heritage. Adult tickets cost £10.00 and a concession for seniors is £9.00. Unfortunately you cannot take photographs in the house.

There’s quite a few rooms you can see, all upstairs. Arranged within the panelled interiors of this graceful mansion is a glittering spectacle: a sumptuous arrangement of silver and jewels, paintings and porcelain. Nearly 700 works of art are on display, including early religious paintings and pieces from the Dutch Old Masters, tiny carved Gothic ivories, fine Renaissance bronzes and silver treasures revealing the genius of medieval craftsmen and the unparalleled quality of Renaissance decorative arts. I particularly loved the collections of Sevres and Meissen porcelain. There’s plenty of information folders in each room to explain the contents.

The grandest room in the house is the long elongated drawing room. It’s lined with tapestries and contains a life size marble sculpture by Bergonzoli of an angel kissing a semi-nude woman entitled "The Love of Angels".

The house is not open on Monday and Tuesday. I didn’t book online; I just showed up at the opening time. If you enter the gate to the right side of the house, you’ll be in the Rose Garden of Greenwich Park; from this Rose Garden you’ll get a lovely view of the back of the house.

The house is located towards the southern end of Greenwich Park. If walking from the attractions of Royal Greenwich, walk up Crooms Hill and then take Chesterfield Walk. You’ll come to the front entrance f the house. There is parking in front of the house. Alternatively you can walk up the hill past the Royal Observatory until you get to a sign for the Rose Garden. Head to the Rose Garden and the rear of the house will be in front of you. The gate to the front entrance to the house is to your left.

It’s an interesting house to visit and I hope you find it as enjoyable as I did.

What an absolutely marvelous review of your visit to Rangers' House, we're glad you enjoyed it. The house was actually meant to be a retirement home for Vice Admiral Hosier originally but he died of yellow fever in the West Indies and it wasn't the home of the Ranger of Greenwich Park until the early 19th century. The collection is actually on loan and this is the reason that photography is not permitted.

This was quite hard to find! Not exactly well-signposted. It has played the role of family home to several royals over the years - today, it houses a spectacular collection of art, crockery, and finely worked jewellery and assorted objets d'art. We saw some amazing things, with a terrific level of detail - it's a terrible shame that photography is not allowed inside. The staff, as ever with English Heritage, is enthusiastic and ever ready to help - and the lady in the gift shop as we were leaving gave us a sample of strawberry wine to try.

Thank you Caroline for your 5 star review of Rangers House, it's great to hear. The house, with it's red brick inner structure with later wings of grey brick stands alone facing Blackheath and can be seen clearly from the A2 and is illuminated after dark.
