In travel - two rules I like to follow are -
1. Getting there is half the fun.
2. A good trip is more who you travel with than the destination.
To get across the river to Greenwich - there is a foot tunnel that is 110 years old. It is about 1/4 mile long. You go down about 5 stories in a spiral staircase or elevator. Then you walk through this nine feet diameter iron tube that is lined with tiles. You cannot see from one end to the other since the tunnel bows down under the river. The first time I went it seemed much scarier than this time.
The Maritime Museum is oriented to school groups and a rewriting of British Naval history.
