A Walk Beyond Time And Place
Being one of the most beautiful parts of London, Greenwich has a lot to offer. On this walk you will not only discover its lanes, the riverfront and the famous park, but also travel back in time. Greenwich is the centre of time not only in London and if you have followed my walks and talks and tales, you know that the title LONDON BEYOND TIME AND PLACE is the motto of not only everything I do in London, but London’s motto in general. So travel with me through time to the Cutty Sark, the Royal Naval College, the National Maritime Museum and the Queen’s House, and of course the old observatory, from which you not only have a brilliant view down the hill across East London, but can also stand on and step over the brass strip that marks the zero meridian of longitude. I promise you a fascinating walk. Let’s go.
