A day in Greenwich, London

Today, we all had a wonderful day out in Greenwich. This is such a beautiful place and if you visit London, should be a must, as not only is it steeped in history, it also has a gorgeous park and markets (Friday-Sundays generally) and if you are in Central London, it's easy to take a river cruise down to visit Greenwich and its wonderful Naval history.

Of course, I'm still on a floral-fest, so it had to be the Ossie Clark for todays outing!!

This is in front of the Old Royal Naval College-just before this we had a lovely picnic lunch, courtesy of Marks and Spencers yummy sandwiches and desserts!! Sadly, the Cutty Sark is being restored, so no photos of this, but me, Christopher and Robert didn't need asking twice to go on the Greenwich Wheel, a similiar version to the London Eye! I think this one is better-less queues-well no queues for us today, the wheel goes faster and you are in more of a private pod, plus it goes around a total of 4 times-we loved it-here are the gorgeous views!!

Greenwich Pier

Once we departed from the Greenwich Wheel, we headed for the park and up the hill to the Royal Observatory, which is home of Greenwich Mean Time and the famous Prime Meridian of the World. It is also a museum of time and astronomy and the Planetarium is here too, though we didn't get to go in.

Taking a pitstop at the top of the hill-the gang!!

Gorgeous views of Canary Wharf and the River Thames!!

After our visit here, there is a lovely little coffee shop at the entrance to the park, where we had coffee and cola floats!! A lovely end to our visit to Greenwich!!

Thanks for the video comment. Since I uploaded it from YouTube sometimes it is super slow to load. Just let it load fully through and then you should be able to view it. I hope? Let me know.

Alice said...

Hi Sharon, i'm back family home and i'm reading your post from the beautiful Sardinian sea (our veranda overlooks the sea). Ossie Clark dress is gorgeous and i think florals are pleasant and so chic, the pre-fall will be the largest floral-fest, cause floral stamps is one of the tendencies proposed by stylist.
I love it!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi alice-oh, how wonderful to be where you are now-lucky, lucky girl!! Thanks for your wonderful comment and have a fabulous, relaxing time!!

Imelda Matt said...

I love the last picture...the lens flare looks like the 'fingers of God', which is perfect considering your at the 'centre of time and space'.

Sharon Rose said...

Yes, I thought the digital reading would come out, but obviously not! Thanks a lot, I like your interpretation of it!
