Several historic buildings are based in Greenwich Park, including the Old Royal Observatory, the Royal Naval College, the National Maritime Museum and the Queen's House.
Standing at the footsteps of the Royal Observatory, one can have an eagle-eyed view of London’s skyline.
The Royal Observatory is home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian line and was founded by Charles II in 1675. It is, by international decree, the official starting point for each new day, year and millennium (at the stroke of midnight GMT as measured from the Prime Meridian).
Pausing at time zero a few weeks ago, I enjoyed the moody view of London. The darkening sky threatened rain, but the pulse of London continued on. The modern office towers in Canary Wharf and the City of London contrasted the timelessness of the Royal Observatory and the Park. You could feel time ebbing and flowing onwards.
I am sure that I will be back to look at the view it again.
