All About Greenwich

The experience

Your day will begin by meeting your Groups Direct Ambassador who will look after you all day. They will then escort you to the terminal where you will board your cable car.

Flying at 295 feet, you will take a flight over the River Thames on the Emirates Airline from the cable car station.

High up you can see the Thames Barrier, Royal Docks, London City Airport, O2 Arena Olympic Stadium, Canary Wharf, The Shard and the Skyline of the City of London.

Once you have landed, you take your short river trip around the Greenwich Peninsula. Here you will be escorted by your Ambassador to the Queen’s House and Gallery. Discover architectural marvels, royal history and over 450 works of art by great British and European artists.

Next to the Gallery is the National Maritime Museum, where you can explore 10 free galleries with collections of artwork, maps, charts, memorabilia and thousands of other objects.

After free time for lunch in Greenwich you will rejoin your Ambassador and meet your Blue Badge Guide outside the Cutty Sark. From here you will begin your 1.5 - 2 hour long walking tour with your guide as they tell all about the surrounding area. Discover the history behind the buildings in Greenwich, such as the Old Royal Naval College, the Queens House and the Royal Observatory. You will learn about the invention of standardised time and Greenwich Mean Time as well as famous people who lived in the area like Nelson and his legacy.

At the end of the tour you will have free time for refreshments before you rejoin your coach and depart for home.

This is a fascinating day in Greenwich that you won’t want to miss out on.
