Day out

Day Out: Greenwich

Hello and Welcome Back! Last Saturday my Dad and Mum came to visit my Boyfriend and I in London. As the weather was unpredictable we decided to go to Greenwich. As there is loads to see and do during all types of weather. In my previous post about Greenwich I shared with you all the activities you can do including the market museums and more. You can read that post here.

Greenwich has a rich Navy history and also has a strong link to the Royal Family. Henry the 8th, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth 1st all being born here. Lets start with the Naval history.

Royal Naval College Buildings

The Royal Naval College buildings are stunning and feel like you are stepping back in time. Walking by the river you feel like you have stepped out of London.


Royal Observatory Walk

For a while we didn’t have any rain so we walked up the hill towards the famous Royal Observatory. It was a steep walk especially if you have little legs like me but the view was amazing!

I love the contrast between old and new London in these photos with the Royal Naval College in front and Canary Wharf behind.

Below are photos of the Queens House. It is free to go inside and it is stunning with a ballroom and artwork in every room. I would highly recommend.

Those of you who have read my blog for a while will know I love to take photos of trees contrasting with buildings. My Dad and Mum named this tree the pompom tree!

I had to take some classic London horizon photos whilst I was on the hill.

St Pauls Cathedral
The O2

As promised at the top of the hill is the Royal Observatory.

At the bottom of the hill is the National Maritime Museum which again I would highly recommend. It is free and you can learn in so much about the history of Greenwich. To be completely honest I took the photos as I thought the giant boat in the glass bottle was cool. It is the simple things in life!

We left Greenwich by walking through the Greenwich tunnel which goes under the River Thames. I was disappointed as there no windows to see the fish through. Though as my boyfriend pointed out we would probably just see rubbish! Photographed below is the exit on the other side.

Despite the rain and even the hail we had a great day out walking around an exploring Greenwich. Have you been to Greenwich before? If not what is your favourite part of London.

Love,
