I don’t spend enough time in Greenwich Park.
Every time I visit I’m reminded of what a stunning place it is and how incredible the views over London are.
You not only have the picture postcard sight of Inigo Jones’ Queen’s House but views over the ever changing landscape of Canary Wharf and the City.
The bulk of 225 Bishopsgate is really on show from this angle. I took a look at the building last week where 12,000 people will work.
The park and views beat any others in London for me. Better than, say, Richmond Park and better views than Hampstead Heath.
It’s all there. The classical brilliance of the Queen’s House, the Naval College beyond then the Thames leading to an exciting and varied modern skyline. Each enhances the other.
Look right and Victorian industry is there in the power station serving London’s tube, near the O2, and turn left for St Paul’s and the City skyline, with post war social housing towers next to new build homes.
If you havn’t been in a while do yourself a favour and rekindle that love with the views. All of London is laid out before you.
