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.


  1. This is my most favourite place on earth! I grew up around here and spent many happy moments in and around Greenwich. I think that this is the best view of London, especially with the Isle of Dogs as its grown over the years. Thanks for the memories! x

  2. It is a beautiful view! My daughter and I are planning a visit to London this summer.

  3. Gosh, you made a wonderful panoramic photo here. I went to Greenwich once, but I stayed near the Thames. I don't remember a scene like this.
