Blackheath – Friday 3rd January 2020

We had come to Kent for a funeral and decided to tag a couple of extra nights on to meet up with various friends (as we’re both from Kent originally).   On the Friday we had the day free, so we hopped on a train and headed to Blackheath village.  Blackheath is located on the outskirts of London, and is a trendy area with lots of independent businesses.  The Heath itself is the starting point of the London Marathon.  The Waterstones, which is styled as “The Blackheath Bookshop”, is located in the former Blackheath Gallery in the centre of the village.  After leaving the shop we walked across the Heath to Greenwich Park, and then down into Greenwich for lunch.
