Greenwich Village is just a short train or DLR train from central London and is a real treat amongst the hustle and bustle of the city, I’ve been there only twice before in my four years in London.
I went to Greenwich purely to see the Astronomy photographer of the year but because it was such a beautiful winters day it seemed silly not to have a stroll around the lovely place. After going to the observatory to see the exhibition we took a stroll through the park (past the very famous clock) and then down the hill to the naval college grounds.
The buildings are stunning and I can’ t believe I have never been there before. My other half commented on how amazing it must of been to be an explorer, go all over the world and arrive back in London to this very spot. We stood next to a tour group to get some inside info and when the clock struck 12 o’clock we were instructed to look at the ball at the top of the hill by the observatory, it dropped right on the ‘dong’ of the clock down at the naval college. Pretty cool stuff.
It is well worth the trip out there as there is also the Cutty Sark boat, the Greenwich market which was on during the day but is much bigger on the weekends and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you well fed during your visit. A personal favourite is GBK as they have Steinlager Pure (the best beer in the world).
