Greenwich Park

Had a wonderful day out at Greenwich Park the other day.

It is a place where you can easily use a whole day, it has everything you could need for a good day out, museums, beautiful places for picnics, a wildlife area, a flower garden and a children’s boating pond.

We started off at the marine part of the museum, next too the queens house, but I didn’t find it as interesting as my boyfriend did. But next was The Queens House, and I could have stayed for hours and hours looking at the paintings in there, but wasn’t that interesting for the boyfriend.

We then walked up to see the Maritime museum and the royal observatory, which it turned out was really interesting for both of us.
Quite a funny thing to have you feet on each side of the meridian line, and the view from those museums where one of the most amazing views in London.

Not only is this a great day out, but it is also free to visit all of the museums, so also a great for a budget experience.
Defiantly a recommended day out in London.
