The last surviving part of the original Greenwich Palace
| Principal residence of the Henry VII, it was known as "Palace Placentia" or "Palace of Pleasurance" since the time of Queen Margaret of Anjou. Three Tudor monarchs were born at Greenwich: Henry VIII, Mary I and Elizabeth I. Prince Arthur and Edmund were also born at Greenwich. First built in 1427, Henry VII added his own structure which no longer stands that is now occupied by the Royal Naval College. Since late 2005 exciting archaeological excavation has taken place and experts have discovered the foundations of the original Tudor Chapel and Vestry.|
"On this site stood the Tudor Palace of Greenwich built by Henry VII. Birthplace of Henry VIII in 1491 and his daughters Mary I in 1516 and Elizabeth I in 1533"
