Excellent day out down the river. Travelled with City Cruises from Westminster Pier to Greenwich - really interesting, and good witty commentary! Visited the Maritime Museum which was really good - especially enjoyed the Battle of Jutland and Nelson exhibits. Didn't have time for the...More

I went here with the prime aim of visiting the Franklin exhibition ; the doomed search for the North West Passage. It was a very interesting and sobering exhibition as, out of the near 150 men who left, none came back. Other than that, I...More

The museum is dedicated to British rule of the high seas, and that spans a lot of time and battles. It is very interesting to see these from a British perspective, after hearing about them from an American one. The museum is clean, and has...More

We visited the WW1 Battle of Jutland exhibition. The story was well told with lots of interesting exhibits and video presentation. The museum has a good children's area for younger visitors and the Terrace Cafe offers good food.

The ahoy area is great for small children. Can get a bit busy when there are school groups. Kids get to dress up as pirates, try their hand at stoking a fire, cooking, balance a container ship, pull up the rigging. Upstairs there is a...More

This is a wonderful Museum set in one of the most beautiful Royal Parks, on the southern bank of the Thames, what a fantastic setting - no wonder it was Henry VIII's favourite Palace! Quite apart from all the other parts of this Museum, there...More

We went to see the Franklin Exhibition and it was very good. A wide variety of formats and lots of fascinating items that have been recovered from this doomed expedition to the NW passage.

Visited with young children, found only half open due to redesign, unfortunate for our 1/2 term. Also the work made it hard to move round with push chairs etc, narrow alleyways for prom etc n only one lift.

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the

Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park
and a number of related buildings (and one world
famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World

There's a lovely little cafe inside the museum called the Brasserie - nice views and good food. Equally there are a few good gastropubs further along the river - the Trafalgar Tavern for example.
