down river to Greenwich, the home of time

Although world-famous for the Meridian Line, Greenwich is also home to the National Maritime Museum, the Old Royal Naval College and the amazing Painted Hall, the Cutty Sark and of course the Royal Observatory.

Greenwich Park is one of London’s eight Royal Parks that extends to a staggering 183 acres with stunning views over the skyline of Canary Wharf on one side and is the gateway to Blackheath on the other.

Getting there

Greenwich is easily accessible by Tube, the DLR and more recently by London’s only cable car (see my previous post) which crosses the River Thames to the Greenwich Peninsular and the O2 or Millennium Dome as it was formerly known.

Highly recommended for escaping the city for a few hours… check out the tourist information website for all things Greenwich
