Royal Observatory – Greenwich


I stood tall taking in some of the most stunning views of the city of London and the River Thames. Even though the climb to the top of Greenwich Park was quite steep, it was definitely worth it.

These images were taken outside the Royal Observatory which is home to the historic prime meridian of the world. This divides both the eastern and western hemispheres….what we know as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

From this location you can see London’s famous views of the towers of Canary Wharf (one of the city’s main financial districts), the Cheese Grater, the Gherkin and other historic buildings.

From the top of this hill you’ll surely be treated to some fantastic views, so don’t forget your camera!

  2. What … no photos of your feet straddling two different time zones? 😉 All joking aside, I’m disappointed I missed out on this view during my visit. But your photos are a lovely consolation. Well done!

    • I knowww – shame on me aye Heather! I totally missed it that day (silly me). The good thing is the Royal Observatory isn’t too far from where I live so I can easily visit there again. So glad you like the photographs and you must come and visit again very soon 🙂

      • Oh, yes! I would love to visit again very soon, Sóla. I haven’t been to the UK since 2007 so I’m long overdue. (And if you keep up with these wonderful photos, you’ll no doubt push me over the edge! Ha ha.)

      • Hahaha – you do make me laugh Heather. ‘We’ have to do something about your long overdue travel back to London. So the plan is….I’ll subtly continue to inject you with photographs from London which will hopefully speed up your impending visit….hurry! 🙂
