Directly behind the table is a large globe framed by Ionic pillasters, and a large clock in an arch above. Rolled charts can be seen on wall above fireplace. The Admiralty House was opened in 1788 and until 1964 was the official residence of the First Lords of the Admiralty. Published in Ackermann's famous work, the 'Microcosm of London', the figures were drawn by the famous caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson and the architecture by Augustus Pugin.
