Greenwich

I went on a day trip to Greenwich, accessible from the Tube. You do have to take the overground, so it takes about 40-50 minutes to get there. Greenwich is right on the River  Thames and home to the Old Royal Navy College. Theres’ a National Maritime Museum and the Old Royal Greenwich Observatory. It has a huge park, a market, and a beautiful view of the city. They had the best make your own trail mix here: honey cashews, walnuts, dried cherries, dried cranberries, and dried bannanas=delicious!Part of the Old Royal Naval College, currently University of Greenwich and part of Trinity College of MusicLittle bit of a hike…The Time Ball!So so prettyThis was one of the earliest electrically driven public clocks and was installed in 1852The red time ball on top of Flamsteed House was one of the world’s first visual time signals. It was installed to enable navigators on ships in the Thames to check their marine chronometers.

Definitely making another trip back here, it’s so pretty!
