Visit the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. Home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the Prime Meridian of the world and London’s Planetarium
This is litterally where the famous Greenwich Meridian starts!! Located on top of a hill, you will also get one of the finest views accross entire London! You have to go!
Walk across the 0 degree Meridian. Beautiful park and different view of the Capital with Canary Wharf in the foreground. Greenwich also has a market which is fun to visit. You can get there by DLR or a boat from Embankment which makes a great day trip.
Spectacular in the day and at night....when walking around Greenwich after dark look up to the Royal Observatory to see the meridian line as a laser through the night.
Ever wondered why the city of London is at the center of world trade? Find the answers here.
Place one foot in the west and one in the east at the Prime Meridian of the world. Learn all about Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and how Greenwich came to be the home of time.
Another of my favourite places. Visit the Greenwich Meridian (dateline) where time begins and ends. Where else can you be in both the eastern and western hemispheres at the same time?
Go and stand on the meridian line. Also, the queens house, maritime museum, cutty sark, markets, Park, pubs and restaurants. Can also get a boat up the river.

“Visit Cutty Sark, the celebrated historic sailing ship and fastest of its time. Now an award-winning visitor attraction in Greenwich, London. The Cutty Sark is the only remaining original Clipper ship in the World and is preserved in Greenwich, London. She was built in 1869 and served as a merchant vessel, travelling throughout the world. The Cutty Sark is thought to be one of the most beautiful ships ever made and makes a striking backdrop to the London Marathon runners as they pass her on the course. ”

“Greenwich park has loads of great features. The best bit is the views over London from outside the Royal Observatory. There's a deer park, a gorgeous rose garden and the meridian line that shines across the sky at night. ”
