Greenwich – Sunday 27th May 2018

After a visit to the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square in the morning, we jumped on the River Bus at Embankment and travelled up the river to Greenwich.  Our first stop was the busy, bustling Waterstones, which has a prominent position in Greenwich village and is set over two floors

Neither of us had been to this part of London for years, so after our visit we went for a wander round the area.   We walked up to the Royal Observatory, but as it was late in the day we didn’t go in – we plan to return one day to do both this and the National Maritime Museum (which is free!).  The views from the top across to London are spectacular.

I was reading My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell on this trip.
