Little London Whispers has written about visiting Greenwich multiple times over the years. There is no better time to visit this Unesco World Heritage site here in London with the exhibitions they have on.

This week a new major exhibition opened Tudors to Windsors at The National Maritime Museum, and next week Gaia returns to the Painted Hall.

Visit Greenwich

Greenwich is one of my favourite destinations in London. It is a cultural destination like no other. Take the new Uber boat and arrive alongside the Cutty Sark, and you are set. I have more tips on my Day Out in Greenwich which I have been told make all the difference to a good day! Y
