Joolz Guides: Royal Greenwich

15/07/2021

Another of these fun, quirky videos

One of the many reasons I like these videos is that he visits so many places I used to know years ago. It is incredibly nostalgic and fun.

Greenwich is a superb place, great views, lovely park, the old Naval College is well worth the visit on it’s own, then there is the Maritime Museum. A marvellous day out. Plus, there are some great pubs, or used to be

One of my favourite day trips in London is to Royal Greenwich – where east meets west and Old historical Royalty meets new modern art and innovation.

Greenwich has been at the centre of the world for hundreds of years and you won’t want to miss all these lovely places to see.

First there’s the peninsula where you can see modern art by Anthony Gormley, Alex Chinnek and more, stretching all along The Line as far as the Olympic park.

Take a trip up the River Thames to the place where Admiral Lord Nelson’s body was taken after the Battle of Trafalgar, Les Miserables was filmed and the first observatory in England was built by Sir Christopher Wren.

Climb the O2 centre for spectacular views of London or see a global sporting event or music concert inside the dome.

Take an Emirates cable car for wonderful views of the river or visit the Now Gallery for new and innovative art installations. You can even hit a few balls on the driving range or walk by the tree where Queen Elizabeth the first played as a child and King Henry VIII got married.
