Discover Greenwich!

*The plan*

1.  A better meeting point: the left hand side of the Cutty Sark boat.

Turn right out of Cutty Sark DLR station, walk to the end of the arcade, turn left and you'll see the boat.

2.  A map:

3.  An itinerary: I've divvied up the day so if anyone arrives late or the group gets separated, there will be a reference point at all times.

* 2 - 2:40 pm: Discover Greenwich Visitor Centre (number 9 on the map) and Greenwich Market (number 14)

* 2:45 - 3:25 pm: Chapel (number 5) and Painted Hall (number 6)

* 3:30 - 4:15 pm: National Maritime Museum (number 2)

* 4:20 - 5 pm: view from the hill by the Royal Observatory (number 1), weather permitting!

Then back down to the Cutty Sark and we can pick a pub :)

Admission is free to all of the above attractions. 

Of course everyone is free to wander around, but I will stay at each location during the specified times. My number for the day is [masked].


Take a trip to the other side of the river and visit Greenwich, home to a World Heritage Site, London's oldest Royal Park, and the place from where time is measured...

I will be waiting on the left hand side of the Cutty Sark from just before 1:45 and will start walking at 2 pm. We will head for the nearest attractions first, to give any latecomers a chance to catch up.

There are plenty of places to eat and/or drink in the town centre, so we can find somewhere to sit and socialise afterwards.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. 

Hope to see you there!


*How to get there*
