Time for Greenwich

This weekend Charlotte and I went to London for a Mr Scruff gig in Camden. During the day we killed time by going to the birthplace of time itself, Greenwich.

Charlotte and I at the Royal Observatory

The royal observatory is definitely one of my favourite places in London, if not my favourite.

Maritime Museum Greenwich

Greenwich is beautiful, situated by the river with the Cutty Sark, a market, park and of course the Maritime museum. From the top of the hill you can see a spectacular view of London, and although it wasn’t the clearest of days for an uninterrupted view, it was still a feast for the eyes.

The museum itself is fascinating, with the four Harrison clocks on display that changed the way we kept time at sea and on land. It is also home to London’s only planetarium, which projects a spectacular show of the universe and it’s mysteries onto a large dome. And also offered a must needed sit down :)

And being that close to the docklands, who wouldn’t sneak a peek at  Canary Wharf on the noddy docklands light railway :)

  • Happiness. 8 out of 10
  • Tiredness. 2 out of 5
  • Workload. 3 out of 10
  • Last Meal. Rice.
  • Song of the day. Mr Scruff – Champion NIbble
  • Thought for the day. Which Islay Single Malt to buy…
  • What I’m Doing Now. Thinking of the layout for my new website (oooh, such a tease :P)
