Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London

One of my favourite places in London - The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich has such an historic charm and beauty, that I just love wanderring freely around its grounds and buildings on any given weekend.

@hugo poon: When you do finally make it over to London Hugo, I do recommend you visit Greenwich (early morning is best, before all the tourist buses turn up). It's a pleasant 30 min boat ride from the main part of London.

I've always liked this building, yet I gravitate (maybe the wrong word) to the observatory when I'm in the area. This shot shows why I should stay down at ground level next time!

@John Leech: Hi John... back in the early 90s I used to work at the college as a design assistant (temporarily), and there was no public access. But since the millenium, Greenwich has really spruced up and opened its doors. Next time you're down you should also pop in to the Queen's House (seen centred behind the statue) and take a sneaky shot of the Tulip Staircase (a shot I will post in the near future).
