This was one of my favorite days of my trip last summer. The scenery was picturesque, the weather was perfect, and I felt like I was in Pride and Prejudice.
On our third day in London, we took the ferry up to Greenwich to go to the Prime Meridian. I was blown away by Greenwich! Maybe that’s an understatement. The town felt like this quaint little town with so much to offer.
We didn’t have time to go into the National Maritime Museum but it is definitely a place I would like to visit when I go back to London; I fully plan to visit the city again! The museum is beautiful and seeing it from the top of the hill where the Prime Meridian is makes it just that more beauitful.
It was a steep climb up to the top but the park was gorgeous. I felt like I was strolling the grounds in a Jane Austen time. The hills were gorgeous, the trees, flowers all around. It felt like a time warp that I was so happy to be a part of. I love Jane Austen, as does my sister, and we were just grinning from ear to ear walking along the trails up to the top.
The Maritime Museum from the top of the hill. How beautiful does it look?!
This is the “statue” that marks the Prime Meridian. It was surreal to this because I co-teach in a Social Studies classroom where we teach about longitude and latitude. I even sent the pictures to my co-worker after we took them!
The ball at the top of the building was what sailors would look at when they were sailing into port.
A little off center but that’s ok!
We just had to do a boyband pose to torture our neighbor Joey!
There was a market in the center of town that I was unable to get a decent picture of. The aromas coming from the different tents were mouth-watering. I had a taco that was just amazing. I even tried a vegan cupcake for the first time! My sister and I were shocked at how good they were! Greenwich is definitely a stop that needs to be made if you are traveling to London! I would love to know your thoughts!
