Figure Court is the oldest part of the Royal Hospital and was started by Wren in 1682. It is enclosed by buildings on its northern, eastern and western sides but its southern end lies open to the grounds and the river. The northern range contains the Chapel and the Great Hall, with an Octagon vestibule between them. The colonnade which extends over the whole length of the range on its inner side is surmounted by a cornice bearing a Latin inscription said to have been composed by Wren himself.
