After some days between skyscrapers and tightly packed houses in the city of London, United Kingdom you might feel the necessity for a little change. The city quarter Greenwich is no insider tip as everybody goes there for the Royal Observatory – but you should consider it, even if it is only for a walk in the evening. Just take the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) from Bank and exit at Maritime Greenwich. After some meters you’re standing at the shore of river Thames.
There you can see the old ship Cutty Sark which is today a museum and you can walk under the Thames within the Greenwich foot tunnel. A short distance away you can enjoy the vast park of Greenwich, climb up the hill to see the observatory and the prime meridian. But the best for sure is the open view on the Docklands from next to the statue of general James Wolfe. With the park underneath you can enjoy the skyscrapers arranged behind the river – a wonderful view.
