The Peninsula Spire is a 45 metres high piece of art. It is the UK’s tallest stainless steel structure.
The present building was designed by Sir Christopher Wren as Greenwich Hospital, but was taken over by the College in 1873.
Amazing views captured using simply laws of Physics. When you visit the Observatory dont forget to have a peek through this Camera. Only takes a few minutes.
A lot of visitors take no notice of this funny little building. But its in fact the entrance to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel...so you can cross to the other side by walking under the Thames!
This area is known as the 'Painted Gallery'...and I think was used as a Dining Room...Nelson would have known this area when visiting wounded seaman.
The Royal Navy Hospital was closed down some years ago...parts are now open to the public...and the rest is used by Greenwich University.
This is the chapel...
This is a view of the Hospital after Queen Anne stepped in...they sliced out the middle...so she still had her view!
This is where the Prime Meridian 0 degrees Longitude is located. the building itself was designed by Sir Christopher Wren.
I did not have time to tour, only to walk past and snap a photo. Upon my return I will defintely graba tour of this famous cilpper ship.
For a family ticket the price was £10.50,2 adults and upto 3 children which I didnt think was too bad.
This goes under The Thames,it only takes 10 minutes,theres a lift down to the bottom,its very well lit and worth while as it gives you another view of Greenwich from the other side of the river.
OK, so the famous green England lawns are brown. Yes, Brie and I were there when the heatwave in Europe hit during the summer of 2003....and it was hot!
