Greenwich is one of the most beautiful and interesting parts of London but is mostly forgotten by most tourists which is a shame as most Londoners would tell you; it is the place to go to.
Greenwich lies to the east of the city and is well worth spending a day at for anyone visiting London. Whether it is visiting the market to grab some tasty street food or bohemian clothing or visiting one of the many world famous tourist attractions, you really should book this tour.
Greenwich of course is home to the Greenwich Meridian where the time of the entire planet is centred upon. Who can miss out on the opportunity to stand on the time-line with one foot in the eastern hemisphere and one in the west.
Greenwich is also home to the Royal Observatory where amongst others Sir Isaac Newton once worked. Even if you don’t want to look in the observatory, the hill offers one of the best views possible of Greenwich, the Docklands and also London itself.
Traditionally Greenwich was also a renowned home of the Royal Navy and every visitor must visit the Royal Naval College to see one of the most breathtaking buildings anywhere with sumptuously decorated and painted interiors which have been used in many a Hollywood and British movie. For the hardcore naval fan there is the chance to visit the Naval Museum too.
Without a doubt, one of the highlights of Greenwich is the Cutty Sark. This tea-clipper sailing ship has a long and glorious history and a few years ago was almost destroyed in a fire during a planned refurbishment. Happily it has been fully restored and now with its keel enclosed under a glass dome, it is even more unmissable than ever before.
For this private guided tour, I will meet you at your hotel and we will then travel by tube and DLR the short distance to Greenwich and explore this wonderful village in the heart of the city. If all the above isn’t enough, there is a Royal Palace to see as well.
