we went to london with friends yesterday.  started by train then go the tube to embankment where we caught the thames clipper to greenwich.  it’s the only way to travel (if you ignore the other options).  here we are waiting

at greenwich we got a bit lost and ended up in a painted room which was very good

kezia enjoyed the mirror which saved her looking up

it was very rainy so not much sight of docklands

but we did watch the 1pm ball drop, something a tour guide described as a “non event”, but one worth watching nevertheless.  we felt thoroughly calibrated.

then, after a few hours wandering around the excellent martime museum we avoided a proper soaking (from the rain and the river) by taking the foot tunnel to the north side of the thames

before getting the driverless DLR to Bank to catch a tube to the train station.  you can see the person driving the driverless train bottom left in this picture
