Quaint and village-like Greenwich is a delightful place to spend the morning. We visit the top of the hill in London’s oldest Royal park - here we are offered a stunning panoramic view of London... we discover the history and significance of the Royal Observatory, the Meridian Line and Greenwich Mean Time. At the bottom of the hill next to the River Thames we see the Cutty Sark, which built in 1869, was the fastest sailing ship of her day - and also see England’s tallest building. We have free time to enjoy the famous market and Greenwich’s other attractions.

You discover why Cambridge is famed for the excellence of its university. We visit Trinity College, the largest in Cambridge.
