Greenwich-Tower Bridge

Greenwich to London Bridge 2nd July 2008

Due to a weather forecast of heavy rain 5 of us decided rather than walk the country side we would catch a train to Greenwich and then catch the very good boat service the " Thames Clippers " and have a look at Tower Bridge in London.
When we left Greenwich the sky was very black and foreboding although this did not distract from another very interesting trip on the river Thames .
Embarking at Tower Bridge we proceeded to do the touristy bit and paid to have a look over the bridge especially going over the high level walkway.
Luck was on our side and the bridge had to be raised to let a sailing barge go upstream and we watched this all happen from the high level walkway. Then a visit to the "Engine Room" was called for and well worth a look if you are in the area
The weather did not improve so back on board the Thames Clipper and on to the Embankment. Here we had a another stop and a wander ashore in search of food.
Not much fun in the rain so back on the clipper again for the return to Greenwich . Before we caught the train home we tried to get some education with a trip around Greenwich Maritime Museum, another must place to visit. Then joining the commuters on to the train home
