There’s nothing I enjoy more than exploring places, and the other week Simon and I went for a walk around Greenwich Park. It was the perfect time to do it: the leaves were turning that beautiful, autumnal golden colour as we get further into autumn, and there were even conkers falling from the trees ready to be collected!
If going, be prepared to do lots of walking! With Greenwich town at the bottom of a hill, the park works its way up from there, with an observatory stood at the top of the hill where there are amazing views of London, and the position of where Greenwich mean time begins.
A beautiful sunny, fresh morning before I headed to Nottingham, it was lovely being able to explore a slightly more tranquil part of London that the tourists don’t always think about. Whilst school trips frequent the Observatory to see the spectacular views of Canary Wharf, overall it is a beautiful, peaceful park with lots of different paths to explore. We had the best morning, watching the ducks being fed; wandering through the flower garden; dancing in the band stand (my favourite bit of the day!) and conker picking, it really was the best way to spend our last morning before re-starting long-distance.
For anyone wishing to go and explore Greenwich Park for themselves, there is more information here.
