July Walking Tour – Royal and Maritime History of Greenwich

What better way to head back into normality than going on a physical walking tour to see some of the historic sights of the capital?

Muhsin Mustafa is a qualified City of London Tour Guide and is very passionate about London. As T‑VINE Magazine’s readers will know, Muhsin regularly contributes with articles about the city’s incredible landmarks and exhibitions about its history.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, his guided trips around London went online as virtual tours. While these continue, as we ease out of the lockdown, Muhsin is again arranging walking tours and he kicks off with an exploration of Greenwich – one of the capital’s most captivating locations.

Greenwich was the birthplace of infamous King Henry VIII and his daughters Mary I and Elizabeth I. In addition to its royal connection, Greenwich was also one of the most important naval sites of England.

Taking place on a Sunday morning, Muhsin’s 2.5 hour tour is an opportunity to meet many naval heroes, including Nelson, see the only surviving tea clipper and enjoy the beautiful views of London from the top of Greenwich Park.

Hear about the fascinating story of the Queen’s House, walk on the grounds where many famous movies were made, such as Pirates of Caribbean, Thor, Les Miserables, Sherlock Holmes, the Crown, Poldark and many more.
