OUTING TO GREENWICH and by River to THE TOWER
SATURDAY 25TH October 2014


Catch 10.20 Hrs Hayes (10:23 West Wickham; 10:25 Eden Park; 10:29 Elmers End) to Cannon Street train and alight at Lewisham to transfer to the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to go on to Greenwich Cutty Sark Station - Remember not use front and rear carriages, due to the short platform at this station.

On arrival we shall make our way to the ‘Old Brewery’ cafe in the Maritime Museum Information Centre. After coffee, members will be free to explore the area, to see the Cutty Sark, the town market, the Painted Hall and any of the other sights of Greenwich.

Meet for lunch at The Yacht 13:00 hrs (Found east of the naval College down Crane Street at the back of the better known Trafalgar Tavern). The Yacht also has windows that overlook the River.

After lunch we shall make our way to the boat pier by the Cutty Sark and take the Thames Clipper to The Tower. Single fares are Adult, £6.50; TFL Travel Card Holder,£4.50; Freedom Pass Holder, £3.40. The main object here is to view the Sea of Blood in The Tower Moat. This consists of over 800,000 ceramic red poppies laid out to represent the number of British and Commonwealth men who died fighting in the First World War. It is understood this display will remain until the 11th hour on the 11th November after which it is to be dismantled and the poppies sold to raise funds for six armed forces charities; so a chance to photograph this unique display.

When all the photographic opportunities have been exhausted, members can make their way home from London Bridge Station which is a short walk away.
