"Greenwich - Cutty Sark - and Time for Tea :-)" Greenwich Park Tip by scotlandscotour

Greenwich Park, London: 12 reviews and 18 photos

Going round the Cutty Sark (Tea Clipper) as a child introduced me to tea, adventure and a fantasy world of pirates, exploration, ... a world now filled with Disney .

Cutty Sark is the last remaining Tea Clipper in the world - I didn't know that! - It's fun, romantic and rich in history. A welcome change from the bussle of city life.

Maritime Greenwich is a World Heritage Site - so how can you miss it?

Greenwich Observatory may be stuffed by light pollution but it is still Greenwich Mean Time, and the prime meridian - and the views of the city are great!

Great pubs and atmosphere in this town that was seperate from London before the sprawl of Greater London absorbed it. It started as the Palace for Kings, and its military and navel connections live on. It may be a bit out of the centre - so read about it now!

As well as the above web link, try Greenwich Guide for info, pictures, etc.
