I took this picture of Cutty Sark on a late-December visit to Greenwich last year. The cold was bracing but it was a beautiful day. It was my first time visiting Greenwich and I found it a fascinating place, filled with history.

Cutty Sark is a striking attraction, and is on prominent display near  the river.


Greenwich is a fabulous spot for a day out, as there’s plenty to see, including the National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory, the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich Park and The Queen’s House.

I didn’t get time to see it all but enjoyed a walk up to the Royal Observatory (with beautiful views) and a look around the art collection on display in the Queen’s House. I hope to go back someday to explore everything else.
