Time Out says

Discover Greenwich is a visitor attraction giving an overview of all the sites which come under the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site banner: the baroque riverside buildings which encompass the Old Royal Naval College, Chapel and Painted Hall; the Cutty Sark; and the Queen's House and Royal Observatory, which are part of the National Maritime Museum. Located in the Grade II-listed Pepys Building, Discover Greenwich is intended to act as a shop front and info centre for the World Heritage Site, and also features a permanent exhibition covering life at Henry VIII's royal palace at Greenwich, and the history of the Royal Navy and the Royal Hospital for Seamen. Exhibits include Tudor artefacts such as gold coins from the reigns of Edward IV and Henry VII, a reconstruction of the Chapel Royal where Henry VIII married Anne of Cleves, and architectural drawings and charts showing how Inigo Jones, Christopher Wren and Nicholas Hawksmoor shaped the area. A new Greenwich Tourist Information Centre is also part of the venue, and visitor trails and family activities are available for exploring the area. Nearby, The Royal Hospital’s Old Brewhouse has been brought back into use after 140 years by Meantime Brewing Company, which has set up a restaurant/bar and micro-brewery creating historical and modern beers.
