First time I've been in England it was on transit, stoping in London Heathrow airport. It was finally in May of 2006 that we got to go deep into the english territory, stoping in Greenwich, Dover & Norwich.
The capital of England and also of the entire United Kingdom, London holds the title as one of the mega cities of the world.
Greenwich6 May 2006
Greenwich is a town, now part of the south-eastern urban sprawl of London, England, on the south bank of the River Thames in the London Borough of Greenwich. It is best known for its maritime history and as the location of Greenwich Mean Time.
Stopped there for over an hour on our way to Dover.
Dover6 May 2006
Dover is famous for its white cliffs, which are made of chalk. The cliffs gave Britain its nickname of Albion, meaning "white".
This was the departing point cruise through the Baltic.
Harwich20 May 2006
Harwich is a town in Essex, located on the coast with the North Sea to the east. The town received its charter in 1238, although there is evidence of earlier settlement - for example, a record of a chapel in 1177 & indications of a possible Roman presence.
Our cruise ship docked here due to severe weather conditions in Dover at the time.
