The London region
Royal Greenwich, World Heritage site, where time begins.
Greenwich in Southeast London is home of the Prime Meridian - Longitude 0 - at the Royal Observatory, the spot from where world time, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), was first calculated.
For hundreds of years it was from these eight miles of Thames riverbank that ships sailed off to trade with the rest of the world to build England' riches. By the nineteenth century Greenwich had become the most prosperous riverbank on earth.
The sheer concentration of great art and architecture that has given Greenwich the status of a World Heritage Site was built on seafaring. Without access by boat to the rest of the world England would have been a backwater. And it was on the banks of the Thames that her maritime success was shaped.
It is a history that has left Greenwich drenched in art and architecture; and the town's ancient buildings and beautiful park are now internationally recognised as a world heritage site - as globally significant as the Taj Mahal or Stonehenge.
The Ranger's House in Greenwich Park is a splendid early 18 th century villa recently refurbished. The grounds include a magnificent rose garden.
In 1869, Cutty Sark set out to be the best clipper of all those in the golden age of sailing. She met her destiny three years later by crushing the fastest clipper at the time, Thermopylae. The 963-ton Cutty Sark's daily sailing distance averaged 163 miles, reaching speeds as high as 14 knots. The phrase "Cutty Sark" means "very short wearing", a phrase used to describe a witch in the legendary tale "O' Thunder". The Cutty Sark is open every day and is a unique opportunity to see the last tea clipper in existence.
The Queen's House, The Old Royal Naval College parts in the middle like the Red sea to give a grand vista up to the small and perfectly proportioned Queen's House. Queen Mary, who commissioned the great build ings, didn't wish her favourite villa obscured. This exquisite Italiante house is now part of the National Maritime Museum, and houses the Museum's fine art collections.
The fan Museum, The World's only Fan Museum is located in a delightful Georgian townhouse in one of London's oldest streets.
The Royal Observatory, It was here that John Flamsteed invented an accurate sea chronometer, finally enabling sailors to work out their exact position from a prime meridian that an 1884 international conference in Washington agreed should be fixed at Greenwich. Here you can see where East meets West.
Greenwich Market, Greenwich Market won its charter in 1700 and sells an enormous selection of arts and crafts, bric-a-brac and antiques from Wednesday to Sunday.
Royal Naval College, The Old Royal Naval College, designed by Sir Christopher Wren with support from Sir John Vanbrugh and Nicholas Hawks moor, began its life in 1705 as a sailors' hospital. Now it has a new identity as home to the University of Greenwich. This is the finest complex of Baroque buildings in Britain.
