Sir John Franklin Expedition Memorial

The chapel at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich is an idyllic place of stunning marble work, painting, and architecture. To step into its hallowed halls is to be taken back in time in a blaze of Romanesque white, blue, and gold. Dizzying geometric figures and paintings dance above in flurries of color. But one solemn, stark piece of art stands out among all the gilded beauty.

To the direct right in the chapel’s vestibule is a quiet reminder of one of the darkest, most tragic moments in maritime history.
