DAY TOUR 1: GREENWICH

 

Sunday 8 April 2018

After our very brief stop in Greenwich during our London Stayaway last year, a number of people said they would like to spend more time there so this Day Tour does just that. It will provide the opportunity to visit some of the famous venues listed below so that you can decide on your own itinerary for the day, perhaps bookingonline in advance to obtain cheaper prices. Youmay like to bring your children/grandchildren orother friends and family as it is planned for aSunday in school holidays, when the traffic should

be lighter than on a normal working day. We will have a comfort stop en route and will be using Real’s 35-seater Executive coach.
