Greenwich

Come with me and ride the River Thames to the beautiful suburb of Greenwich, now one of London’s few Royal boroughs and birthplace to  King Henry VIII and his daughters Mary and Elizabeth. So much to see and do including the magnificent tea clipper the Cutty Sark built in 1869 and recently restored to its former glory. Also enjoy the unbeatable views from the top of London’s oldest Royal Park and stand either side of the Prime Meridian Line at Greenwich’s Royal Observatory. Explore London’s rich maritime past at the National Maritime Museum, the largest of its kind and visit arguably the most sumptuous dining room in the world the Painted Hall within the Old Naval College. As well as taking in all these great attractions, enjoy the independent stalls in the market selling everything from jewellery to toys to artworks, not to mention the mouth watering food-stalls with cuisines from countries all over the world. Take a half day or a more leisurely full day to explore all that this UNESCO World Heritage Site has to offer.
