TYPICAL ITINERARY

Highlights:
Cutty Sark, Maritime Museum, Greenwich Palace, World Meridian Line, Royal Observatory. The Royal Borough of Greenwich lies to the south-east of Central London, and with so much to see and do, deserves a full day of touring in its own right.

CUTTY SARK
First, we visit the spiritual home of a ship, the resonant name of which somehow, every London school-child knows: the Cutty Sark. It has the most extraordinary history as one the fastest 'trade clippers' of the sea. A recent multi-million pound refurbishment has seen the whole ship transformed into an amazing dry dock museum.
● Usually open daily.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

MARITIME MUSEUM
Greenwich was designated a World Heritage Site in 1997. It has a famous naval tradition: it was the Royal Navy HQ for 400 years, and many voyages left from this shore of the Thames. We will view a brief history by visiting the National Maritime Museum.
● Usually open daily.
● Free entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

QUEEN'S HOUSE
Greenwich is famed for its buildings. According to one expert: ‘the finest collection of architecture in London’. For 300 years Greenwich Palace was the principle royal palace outside London, and the cradle, quite literally, of the Tudor dynasty: Henry VIII, Bloody Mary and the Virgin Queen were all born here. Royal patronage ensured variety, and all the greats are represented: Wren, Hawksmoor, Vanbrugh, etc. The Queen’s House, designed by Inigo Jones in 1616, was the first classical building in the country.
● Usually open daily.
● Admission free.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

ROYAL OBSERVATORY
Greenwich is also London’s time capsule. It became one of the most famous place names in world when Greenwich Mean Time was accepted as the centre of the world’s time zones in 1884. We take a drive up to Greenwich Park to visit the Royal Observatory, built in 1675 by Sir Christopher Wren. Here we will find some of the answers to the mysteries of time, including Harrison's famous nautical clocks designed by to conquer the problem of calculating longtitude at sea. We also have the opportunity of straddling the exact line where the world’s east meets the world’s west. Finally, we take a brief tour around the original Greenwich Village. Famous military residents of the area include General Wolfe and General Gordon.
● Usually open daily.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

PRACTICAL TOUR INFO:

Important note: 'Private tour' means a privately chartered guided tour. It does not entail exclusive private access. We do not offer tours to individuals wishing to join a larger group (for this you require a scheduled coach tour operator).

Timings: A recommended start time ensures the tour runs to schedule. The duration of this tour is timed from pick-up to drop-off and usually includes built-in stops for photo opportunities, facilities, and a one-hour lunch break.

Pick-up/drop-off: You can be picked-up for your tour anywhere in the central London area, whether at your hotel, place of residence, or venue of your request. The same applies as a dropping-off point after the tour. Tours from London may use fastest routes.
