Greenwich and London 14th May 2008
We set off from our local railway stations and met up at Greenwich pier where we boarded the fast boat the Thames Clipper on bound for the Embankment in London.
The sun broke through as we set off and we were spoilt with the various Thames views both historical , such as Greenwich itself and modern, the docklands.
We passed under numerous London bridges including Waterloo Bridge which our leader told us was built by women in WW2 and therefore is known by Londoners as The Lady's Bridge.
Passing under Tower bridge we drew along side HMS Belfast for a really close up view.
Eventually we disembarked at The Embankment and walked up through Trafalgar Sq into St Jame's park where we stopped for a bite to eat and enjoy the views.
Then on passed Buckingham Palace through the parks and the Wellington Arch , onto Green Park for an ice cream.
The day had become very warm so we strolled down to the embankment for a really nice coffee then rejoined the boat back to Greenwich
