Greenwich

Here are some photos from our trip to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich on Saturday. It was quite cool and in lovely surrounds.

We did the daggy tourist thing and took photos of each other standing either side of the Prime Meridian line of longitude. But that’s why people go to Greenwich, right?

It was cool learning about the history of the Observatory, including about the first Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed. There were some very old clocks there which were cool. I was so impressed I bought the guide book. I thought about buying a mug too, but resisted the urge.

    I miss those souvenir/Museum shops, buy more mugs! Amazing weather and brilliant blue sky, is this really London?
