London: Greenwich

As well as hanging around the South Bank when my Dad came to visit, we also spent some time in gorgeous Greenwich with its glorious views:

Spot the landmark! But, there's more than just a view to take in. In this area you'll find the Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, The Queen's House and the Royal Observatory (all under the Royal Museums Greenwich banner). There's also the Old Royal Navy College there.


We had a quick look around them, but you would need a good couple of days to really take everything in and see what's there.

If you do trek up the hill of Greenwich Park to the Royal Observatory, it's worth taking in a show at the Planetarium. There are various shows on throughout the day so check and plan accordingly if you want to see a specific one. You'll also find the Meridian line up here.

Now, let's take a look at that view again. Isn't it something? x

PS: We also went to the theatre later that day to see A Chorus Line. It was the last ever show of it before it closed down and I can see why - I really didn't enjoy it and found the plot and characterisation to be really weak, with no memorable musical numbers or any substance to it really. Disappointing!
