Greenwich, the famous British district southeast of London, makes for a breathtaking out-of-city excursion. Speckled with historic buildings, scenic bridges, verdant gardens, museums, galleries and the sparkling river Thames, London’s wholesome sights are a delight to explore.
But equally exciting is the fact that the Capital of the Old Blighty is also the gateway to numerous out-of-town attractions.
The maritime town of Greenwich, given the fact that London attracts over 30 million tourists a year, it is highly recommended that one make prior bookings for various sights and tours. This is where “The Discover London” experience by ShangriLa Hotel at the Shard came in handy.
