One of the Seven Wonders of London
M32 has reminded me that Time Out’s ‘Seven Wonders of London’ series has included The Old Royal Naval College this week. Of course I’m rather miffed that it’s only Number 4 rather than Number 1, of course, but maybe they’re saving that honour for the Observatory…
It’s a good little article – nothing we probably don’t already know, but covering all the major points and the wide-angle photo is worth taking a closer look at for the interesting peripheries.
Maybe this will be a cue for TO to spend a little more time looking at what Greenwich has to offer. Don’t get me wrong – I love the mag – and am a subscriber – but I do get a little weary of their concentrating on trendy areas like Marylebone High Road, Clerkenwell and Islington, only wheeling Greenwich out for obvious features like “Top twenty places to have a picnic…” when there are great shops, interesting places and even the odd restaurant (sadly ‘odd’ being the operative word) that really warrant a mention in their hallowed pages.
