This is certainly our most beautiful walk. We’ll see what is considered the second greatest painted ceiling in the world and other spectacular historic buildings such as the Old Royal Naval College. Naval history is to the fore here, including where Nelson was laid in state before his funeral. There are wonderful views of the whole of London once we’ve walked through a lovely park en-route to the Prime Meridian and Royal Observatory. There’s also plenty of Tudor history here. This was Henry V111’s and Elizabeth’s 1’s favourite country residence. There’s also an historic house which is one of the most haunted places in Britain. Greenwich was also an Olympics site and we’ll tell you how it managed the event. And if you’re a film fan you’ll be seeing places that may seem familiar, as these wonderful old buildings are often used for filming anything set in days gone by, such as Les Miserables.
