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!!
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.
The Prime Meridian of the World
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!!

We arrived at St Katherines Dock and bought some sandwiches, cake and drink to eat on a lovely green overlooking the Thames-this was our view as we were eating!!!
A pitstop at Cafe Rouge for a pot of earl grey tea for me and Chris-it was like a sun trap here and the boats here were spectacular-one was for sale for only £1.25 million-Chris wondered if they would take a cheque-haha!!!
Onwards to the Tower of London-hello Chris!!
We had a lovely time here- I would recommend any one who comes to London to visit the Tower-although we didn't go in, there is plenty of information to read as you walk around!! We came back to Essex and I decided to go thrift shopping-I picked up a lovely black leather horsebit trim belt, a Cacharel scarf, a lovely fitted, soft brown leather jacket and inspired by lovely Silje, a wine coloured lambswool long line cardigan for Autumn!!
