Greenwich, situated in south east London (SE10), is home to many tourist attractions and has a rich, naval, historical background. Among the wealth of historical sites are also many useful modern day necessities such as the Astronomy Centre, the O2 Centre, a variety of restaurants and computer repair in Greenwich. Overlooking the Thames with transport links via the Docklands Light Railway, Greenwich is easily accessible from the heart of London and can make for a great day out sight-seeing for tourists, locals interested in their area’s history and newcomers finding their way in south east London.
One of the most globally known landmarks of Greenwich is the Royal Observatory due to it being the location of the Prime Meridian, the basis of longitude and Greenwich Mean Time. Built in 1675 for King Charles II, the observatory was used to trace the stars across the sky; it now stands as a divider between the west and the east which draws in visitors in their thousands. It is also home to a 4.5 billion year old asteroid and holds exhibitions as well as providing free entrance to the Astronomy Centre.
Another main attraction is the Cutty Sark, a Nineteenth century sailing ship from a time before technology, smart phones, tablets and PC repair in Greenwich existed. In her heyday, this ship passed through all the major ports of the world and was primarily a cargo ship weighing 963 tons at a length of 280 feet. Although compared to modern day container ships of up to 12,000 feet, the Cutty Sark may sound small but at the time she was considered large and powerful, able to withstand rough seas and stormy weather. It has been restored to its former glory and now resides a couple minutes walk away from the Cutty Sark DLR station, holding tours and giving visitors a unique experience.
