Historic Greenwich and the Royal Park (Part 2)Historic Greenwich and the Royal Park (Part 2)
By NEILMUIR1 on June 22, 2010

I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of my articles on this amazing place. To those of you who have been to Greenwich, some of the places are recognizable instantly, some are not. A lot of people travel thousands of miles and never actually get to see what the Park, the Royal Naval College or indeed Greenwich has to offer. If you ask most people if they have ever seen the Roman remains in the Park, they have no idea there were any!
