We will be going to Greenwich by train and following an itinerary proposed by Derek Durant as detailed below.
Train from Uckfield at 08:33 to London Bridge (Buxted 08:37, Crowborough 08:44). Change at London Bridge
for Greenwich overground station. Off-peak Travelcard £22.80 or £15.05 with Senior Railcard. Arrive at
Greenwich around 10:15.
Stop for coffee at The Plumtree Café at 241 Greenwich High Road SE10 8NB adjacent to Sainsburys Local
store. We should be here by 10:30 for anyone coming who is not travelling on the Uckfield Line.
From the café we will make our way to Greenwich Market, stopping here for about 30 minutes.
We will then walk to Greenwich Park where we can stop at the National Maritime Museum, which is free entry
(excluding any special exhibitions).
Then on through the park and up to the Royal Observatory area. We will stop here for a while and have lunch
at the Café.
After lunch we will make our way back down through the park and visit the Queen's House (which hopefully
will be open) and then on to the Painted Hall.
We will finish at the Cutty Sark.
Possible return train time from Greenwich is 16:07, arriving in Uckfield at 17:52. Alternative off-peak trains
from Greenwich are 17.17 and 18.47 arriving at Uckfield at 18.52 and 20.52 respectively. Please check return
train times for yourselves.
The only caveat to this is that if rain is forecast on the day it will not be a worthwhile trip, so we will need to look
at this nearer the time and we must have mobile numbers for those planning to attend so that we can send out
a cancellation text if necessary.
Please respond by email and send me your contact mobile number if you have not already done it.
