In Praise of Greenwich


Relaxing Between A Pair Of Twins Old Royal Naval College University Of Greenwich London Uk

I thought it would be nice to share a little insight into some of the areas where I service beautiful pianos throughout London. One of the Boroughs I enjoy repairing pianos and tuning them is London Borough of Greenwich. I love the history of the place, and the mix of districts within Greenwich: Abbey Wood, Blackheath, Charlton, Eltham, North Greenwich, Thamesmead, Westcombe Park, to name but a few!

Each of these areas has its own personality, offering great diversity and a colourful mix throughout the Borough of Greenwich. I really enjoy the history of Eltham, what with the quintessentially English Royal Palace, and I wish so much that I could travel back in time and see what life was like there in the Fifteenth Century!

Having moved to London recently, I make the most of what the city has on offer, and you will see me going to concerts at the 02 which I thoroughly enjoy.

I have also been fortunate enough to have walked over the top of the Dome, and taken the cable car across the Thames, I really enjoy the trip aboard the Thames Clipper along the riverbank into Westminster. I especially love this trip at night time, marvelling at all the fantastic buildings and bridges lit up as you make your way to Westminster Palace.

My Favourite Hotspots

My favourite sights include St Paul’s Cathedral, the fantastic Shard at the London Bridge, and Tower Bridge at night time. It was fascinating to discover that Tower Bridge is classed as a ship, and has a captain being at the helm at all times.

Why Blog About This?

The reason I’m writing this blog about Greenwich is chiefly the result of my time spent exploring the Borough following my recent relocation to London. Time is such an exciting concept, and I guess Greenwich is the modern-day focal point of time, “the Prime Meridian Line”. I have so much more to say about the Borough, what with music and entertainment over the years, but for now, it is time for me to go!
