A busy spot is this Limehouse basin, lots of boats have been coming and going through the lock over the last few days. Lots of cruisers in and out.

We paid a visit to the Greenwich observatory today, well worth it. There are lots of interesting exhibits on show in the museum covering the history of Greenwich Mean Time. Also popped into the maritime museum but it was very busy. Must visit again outside the busy holiday season.
