A glorious spring-like day in London saw us heading to Greenwich for a wander round. From the hill where the Royal Observatory is situated you get a stunning view across London. The National Maritime Museum, the Old Royal Naval College and the Queen's House provide a beautiful and historic foreground, originally the site of a Tudor palace where Henry VIII was born. In 2012 they provided the backdrop to Olympic equestrian events. Together they make up a World Heritage Site (like Saltaire). Read more about it here. Across the River Thames you can see the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf.
