Painted Hall in London well worth a visit!!

Just had an hour tour of the Painted Hall, definitely worth doing for £10! You get up close and personal with the restoration of a beautifully Painted ceiling (like the Sistine chapel) painted by an Englishman. Highly recommend if you are in London 2017/2018! https://www.ornc.org/painted-hall-ceiling-tours-tickets

For quite a while, this will be the only way to see the Painted Hall, but it is a unique opportunity to get close to what you would in the past have seen (albeit for free) only at a distance, in a mirror or with a crick in your neck, or with binoculars. You get to see where past workers have left their mark on Queen Mary's bosom, for example.....
