This weekend, my Mum and I took a little detour out of the hustle and bustle of central London and instead, hopped over the river to Greenwich.

When I was little, Mum had taken Lu and I here before to see the Cutty Sark, but I have to admit I remembered very little of this trip. This time however, we were just visiting to see what the area was like- recently I have been flat hunting and so trying to get to know some different areas to our normal stomping grounds!

We visited the beautiful grounds of the Old Royal Navel College, popping inside some of the buildings to see the stunning wall paintings and intricate carvings.

Outside, we sat on the grass, listening to a band who were practicing somewhere in the college, their music drifting out of an open window.

Then, like any Brit who feels the slightest hint of sunshine, we headed for ice cream!

We walked away from the Navel College towards the Queen's House. Some of the views we encountered from here were just simply incredible!

It's always great discovering a new area. In a city as large and varied as London, I love how there's always something completely new and different just around the corner...


  1. Oh my gosh! How picturesque? I love your photos and your experience made me feel like I was right there with you! Hehe! x

  2. Looks like a great little visit. There are so many interesting neighborhoods around London - I feel like I need to spend a few weeks there at one point to really get my bearings!

  3. Lovely photographs! The navy college looks stunning!
