I am going to skip out of London for a few days at the end of the week. Well, that’s the plan anyway. It’s been quite a busy Easter work wise, and tomotrrow I shall again be enjoying the delights of SE10, or Greenwich to the uninitiated. And if you are one of the latter, really it is something you should address.
Years before it ever occurred to me to become a Blue Badge Tourist Guide and submit myself to the gruelling two years’ training, I fell in love with Greenwich. Come with me tomorrow, and I think you’ll quickly understand why.
We travel by boat, a short but near perfect cruise that lasts around twenty five minutes.
Meet me at Tower Hill for 10.30 by the Tower Hill Tram Coffee Stop.
Wednesday I shall spend in the City. First of all guiding the Tower of London, so all you Wolf Hall fans – and let’s face it, who isn’t? – prepare to tread in the steps of Anne Boleyn and Cromwell.
A tour costs £9, or £7 for concessions, plus fares and admission charges where applicable. At the Tower Under 15s pay £3 plus admission.
