See Princess Caroline's Bath

At the Southern end of Greenwich Park, the sunken bath of Princess Caroline of Brunswick, the wife of the Prince Regent, later George IV, is all that remains of the Princess' former home, Montague House.


Caroline lived here for more than ten years, banished by a husband who hated the sight of her, and said that she smelled, and the sunken bath was at the heart of an elaborate bath house, which has long since been razed to the ground.

  1. George IV always struck me as an insensitive, sexist boor. I know she spent the rest of her life in a foreign country, without the comfort of family or daughter, but I hope Princess Caroline found some joy in her life.
