A unique two-day celebration of all things iron in and around World Heritage Greenwich.

A focal point for Britain’s maritime and horological heritage, as well as the site of Henry VIII’s armoury, Greenwich is steeped in ironwork history. This one-off event will celebrate the fascinating, multi-faceted material that has played such a vital role in our history, and contributed in so many different ways to major technological developments across the globe.

A series of talks at the Old Royal Naval College will be followed by a guided walk of local ironwork highlights. The following day offers a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes in the busy workshops of a leading conservators Hall Conservation, and try your hand at various conservation techniques.
