LONDON, October 13, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Greenwich's Royal Museums has announced its 2015 schedule, which contains numerous intriguing exhibitions and projects at the National Maritime Museum, Cutty Sark, Queen's House and Royal Observatory. Greenwich is one of London's most picturesque areas, as well as one of the most historic.

Highlights of the 2015 programme include the National Maritime Museum's celebration of Stuart London with Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire and Revolution (20th November 2015 – 28th March 2016) as well as the museum's collaboration with the Punchdrunk immersive theatre group, with their family-friendly tour/exhibit Against Captain's Orders: A Journey into the Uncharted (28th March – August 2015).
