8th August

Off to the prime meridian today! G&A, their Friends and I arrived before midday to see the 'timeball' drop at exactly 1200hrs... but we missed it! Our watches weren't on the right time, I think :P. There is a nice view of the city and Thames from the grounds just outside of the royal observatory (where the time ball is, and the meridian passes through).

From there we went for a walk through Greenwich Park to the Old Royal Naval College, which was previously the Greenwich Hospital. We had a look at the Painted Hall, and the chapel, both very beautifully decorated.
