I reviewed the tube map and made a plan, only to find out while on the give that the line I wanted to switch to was not running. It wasn't a big deal, but did add 20+ minutes to my travels. Once I straightened that out and was trying to find the DLR I got off one to switch to a different line, only to manage to get lost in the train station for 10 minutes (train leaves from the same platform, I'm just an idiot)
Anyhow, an hour or so later I finally arrived. I was following a crowd of people and by chance realized they were going to the Greenwich Market. Since I was starving I gorged on some vegetarian pad Thai .
After I had my fill of the market I headed down to the dock. The Cutty Sark is "docked" here and open for a fee, it was neat to look at but ships with lots of people would have maxed out my crowd tolerance early so I headed up to the maritime museum.
I didn't see anything from the Titanic. It is a beautiful building and free, so definitely worth a visit.
Behind the museam is Greenwich park which leads up to the observatory and planetarium. The planetarium is small, but had some cool displays. I always have a hard time wrapping my head around the universe and this definitely didn't help!
Without going into the actual planetarium, the exhibits are free, the only area that cost money is the observatory. Inside there is some odd (like we are trying too hard to be cool) exhibit about punk? I don't recall. Essentially it seemed that the space was now being used to display local art. Some was quite near looking but it didn't seem to fit what I was expecting.
The other main attraction was to stand on the prime meridian which was established here in 1851. Never one to pass up the photo op, I stood in the forever line to take my picture.
There was a nice view, but with an iPhone only so much can be captured.
I walked around the park before needing the warmth of a building. I stopped in the Queens House to see art that was displayed and then quickly stopped in the Old Royal Navy College.
I enjoyed Greenwich and look forward to going again and stopping at the brewery there!
