Take a step in time with this historical photo walk in the Greenwich region of London.
Join Park Cameras for this photo walk in Greenwich – home to the Meridian Line at the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum, the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich Market and Greenwich Park!
Starting at the vibrant and colourful Greenwich Market, our experienced tutor will take you on a tour of the region, sharing his tips and tricks to help you capture some fantastic images that this area of London has to offer.
Within Greenwich Market, there will be plenty of opportunity to take macro and street shots, using the colours and natural light that the market offers.
Moving on from the market, this walk will take you through Greenwich Park, leading up to the Royal Observatory where there will be opportunities to take shots of the fantastic architecture, but also to get some shots from arguably one of the best viewpoints of the London skyline.
From the observatory, you’ll then head back down the hill to visit the Old Royal Naval College and the magnificent Queen’s House (although due to safety reasons, entry will not be permitted at this time unfortunately) where you’ll be able to capture some of the history that these buildings hold, with the college featuring in numerous Hollywood Blockbusters!
The last stage of this walk takes up to the famous Cutty Sark where you’ll be able to get some external shots of this fantastic Victorian ship.
The photo walk concludes at approximately 1pm and finishes close to Cutty Sark station, which is on the DLR line. There are also various pubs, restaurants and cafes in the area, should you wish to take a break before exploring more of the area of Greenwich!
Through out the walk, our tutor will be on-hand to offer help and advice at any time – he has a wealth of knowledge, so don’t be afraid to ask! They will also take images themselves and share them with the group to offer inspiration to any images you may wish to take.
This walk is ideally suited for those who have an interchangeable lens camera, ideally with a wide angle and telephoto lens (although standard lenses are also fine!). If you own a compact camera, this would also be suitable for the photo walk. Due to the nature of the walk, a tripod is not recommended.
This walk is primarily on level ground, and there are plenty of opportunities for breaks during the session. We advise bringing your mobile phone with you, incase you get separated from the group so you can contact the walk leader. We’ll provide their number upon arrival.
Important information: This photo walk is limited to 6 people to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our customers and colleagues and to comply with social distancing recommendations. Please see below for further precautions we have taken for this photo walk.
It is also recommended to bring a coat and/or an umbrella, as the weather can be unpredictable. Please also bring a bottle of water to ensure you keep hydrated for the duration of the walk.
The meeting point of this photo walk is the entrance to the Cutty Sark. Please ensure you provide your mobile number when booking your place, so that our tutor can contact you on the day should they need to.
