The National Maritime Museum
Romney Road, Greenwich, SE10
Nearest station: Greenwich BR station
Tel: 020 8858 4422
This is one of the most popular attractions in Greenwich. And rightly so for it contains everything you ever wanted to know about British maritime history.
There are paintings, maps, globes and all manner of nautical instruments. And one of the highlights of the exhibition is the uniform in which Admiral Nelson died during the Battle of Trafalgar, bullet hole and all.
There are also several boats - both scale models, life-size models, and originals - including some very ornate royal barges.
But the highlight has to be an interactive gallery called All Hands. This gives you a first hand experience of what it was like to be a sailor throughout different periods of history. Children (and big kids) will love it!
The museum is open daily from 10am-6pm Mondays to Saturdays and from noon-6pm Sundays. Entrance is around £6, but includes entry to the Royal Observatory and the Queen's House as well.
