Day out at Savill Garden, Windsor

Wednesday 23rd June 2010

Today Gina and I went for a day trip to the Savill Garden, part of Windsor Great Park. We had a very interesting time, viewing all the different types of gardens displayed. There is a very useful visitor centre, with a restaurant and amenities, which made it much easier to enjoy the whole day.

Here we are standing next to one of the flower beds.

Day out at Greenwich Observatory & Museums

Monday 21st June 2010

Today we had a really full and most enjoyable day out at Greenwich. First, we decided to take the scenic route, and went to Tower Pier, next to the Tower of London, and then took the “Thames Clipper”, a fast hydrofoil type boat to Greenwich. There we visited the naval museum, the Royal Observatory (with the world famous longitude 0 degrees time line), and then the Queens House which housesĀ a maginificent collection of art galleries, dating from Tudor right up to modern times.

We then returned by the “Clipper” to Tower Pier, and after a leisurely walk around the surrounding area, finished off a great day by eating outside a restaurant in St. Katherine’s Docks, with its’ nautical views.
