What you'll do

Join me for a walk around historical Greenwich to see the most iconic and interesting locations like the legendary Cutty Sark, Old Royal Naval College, Maritime Museum, Queen’s House, Royal Observatory, Painted Hall, old pubs and some interesting photo locations including Canary Wharf panorama. Some of the spots from my walk are otherwise easy to miss, although featured in various publications. Some of these places are the Tulip stairs, hundreds-years old pubs and The Prime Meridian line at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, where east meets west at Longitude 0°. This is the perfect experience for you if you want to see Greenwich like a local. I won't bore you with all the historical details, but I'll point out things that a local would know and show you a different perspective on the places you can go on other tours. I'd be happy to recommend you the best place for typical British tea, the oldest pub in the area, a comedy club, local sausages and burgers or even a butcher, not to mention local restaurants, cafes and shops. Should you have any queries or other requests, don't hesitate to contact me in advance!

Kris

I'm an experienced photographer and London explorer. Have been living in Greenwich and Canary Wharf for nearly 6 years now. Passionate about this city's architecture and people. I love walking around the city with my cameras, finding new inspiring places and new perspectives at known landmarks. Now I decided to share my experience with people visiting London so that they can see some of these interesting spots and take shots that would otherwise be difficult to find.

Where you'll be

The areas of West Greenwich, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich Market, Cutty Sark, Royal Observatory, Queen’s House, Maritime Museum, Greenwich Park. If you’re one group and time allows we can also take a walk under the river Thames and enjoy the view at beautiful old Greenwich and the hill with Observatory from the North bank of River Thanes.
