|Further details indoors|
A modern development, the mahogany colour wooden floors and whitewashed walls stand in stark contrast to the wall of south facing glass cleverly concealed from the street by vertical blinds. With high ceilings and a large square footage the sleeping and living area of the studio intermingle. The Day Bed (IKEA HEMNES) opens up into two single side by side single sleepers while the sofa bed opens into a good sized double.
While the fully equipped kitchen is quite large and is used for meals (kitchen table and four chairs are in the kitchen), the best thing is that it is a seperate kitchen from the Reception.
There is also a Bathroom. It is PARTIALLY HANDICAP Assisted as the W.C. and Wash Hand Basins have grab hand rails and an alarm chord, however, the shower cubicle (although large) was not made to be wheelchair accessible.
|Further details outdoors|
The area immediately outside of the studio is Greenwich.

NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM
Following the National Maritime Museum's £20 million facelift, the 19th century Neptune courtyard has been covered over by a glass roof. The revamped museum is bright, airy and the whistling wind and fresh air make you feel like you're on deck. The various exhibitions in the galleys/galleries offer an interactive experience with heaving open hatchway doors, turning the ship's wheel and using Viking oars. Check out ancient uniforms, follow Admiral Nelson's sea-faring career, watch archive material of passenger ocean travel, discover what life was like in Britain's maritime heyday, and get involved in the All Hands exhibition. Wind down in the lush Global Garden - the glorious result of exotic seeds brought back by sailors. Admission is free.
ROYAL NAVAL COLLEGE
Designed by Christopher Wren, this building was founded by William III as a hospital for the Royal Navy. The Painted Hall, decorated in the 18th century by James Thornhill, is particularly worth a visit. The grounds also include the Chapel of St. Peter and St. Paul in Queen Mary Court, its Rococo style restored in 1980. The Royal Naval College is found alongside the River Thames, within a few minutes walk of the picturesque Queen's house. One-hour guided tours are available for GBP5, GBP4 concessions.
Designed by Hercules Linton, the Cutty Sark was renowned throughout the seafaring world as one of the fastest ships of the period. After a colourful career, she was moved to a dry dock in Greenwich in December 1954. Officially opened in 1957 by Her Majesty the Queen, she's been visited by over 13 million people since. The number of 'the old lady's' admirers are bound to increase, as she remains a living testimony to a glorious bygone era of sail and Empire.
