Teenagers’ Easter Monday visit to Greenwich

A small group of the teenagers from Canterbury SA had a great time when they visited Greenwich on Easter’s bank holiday Monday. An early start (for those under 20, anything involving the morning is early!) meant that we were in Greenwich area by around 11am, even allowing for the closed train lines and complicated routes. We broke off into small groups, each exploring the different attractions of the area.

One group visited the British Music Experience at the O2, a hands-on exhibition of modern British pop music. Another visited the Emirates Air Line, a cable car over the River Thames. Yet another visited the Cutty Sark, the world famous tea clipper.

There was plenty else to do, and despite expectations of overcast skies and rain, just a short shower at around lunch time broke the warm spring sunshine. Greenwich Market offered plenty of varied stalls with craftsman selling numerous works of art, jewellery and novelty items, plus plenty of food! There were loads of shops and a park too, which gave rise to the invention of ‘lunchbox cricket’.

A quick group photo was the last order of the day (above) before heading back to Canterbury. The return journey was not without hiccups – some of the group ended up getting back on a slightly later train from the rest of the group! It was a great day, though – a good way to spend the bank holiday, with friends.
