Folks who are thinking about coming on one of our walking tours as well as tour guests
already booked, often ask us: what do we wear and/or do we bring an umbrella?
An important thing to remember is that although our tours are classed as walking tours, the longest walk that we do is up to the Greenwich Royal Observatory which takes about 15 minutes. And so some walking is of course part of what we do, but the vast majority of our time is spent indoors at one of the venues here in beautiful Greenwich. These include the teaclipper Cutty Sark – now reopened after a £50 M. restoration, the Old Royal Naval College, the National maritime museum as well as the Observatory. Our ” Best of Greenwich ” Day Tour also includes the delightful Queen’s House, designed by Inigo Jones.
Dress for the occasion as they say – and in this instance, that would be for comfort.
The famously changeable weather here in London means that it cannot hurt to bring along a sweater if it is Spring or Fall – just in case. A warm, sunny day means cottons and perhaps even shorts as well. However, rain is always a possibility in London, even in the summer time and so if it looks like rain is a possibility on tour day, do bring along an umbrella just in case. Again, the good news is that most of our time is spent indoors, but simple precautions are a good idea.
Hope this has been of some help in your tour planning. This is our first blog but
hopefully the first of many. Stay tuned as we will be writing about everything and anything connected with our unique guided tours of historic Greenwich. Future topics will include
more on food on our tour ( eg. pub lunch on the day tour ), informative testimonials from tour guests as well as news about brand new tours planned for the 2013 season. Also, our new YOUTUBE video is expected out next month and so hope to have that for you as well.
Until then, as we say here at Greenwich Royal Tours: KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON WALKING!
