Meet your guide close to the Cutty Sark in the heart of Greenwich to begin your private photography walking tour. After familiarising yourself with your camera and learning some basic techniques, turn your lens towards your first subject, the majestic Cutty Sark, the world’s only surviving tea clipper.
Set off along the Thames Path and admire the views along the River Thames, stretching all the way into central London. Stop along the way to take photos and learn more about composition, aperture and lighting as you try your hand at landscape photography.
Hear about the neighborhood’s rich maritime heritage as you arrive at Greenwich Pier and marvel at the grand Old Naval College, part of the Greenwich’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then, continue along the Thames Path, stopping to pose for photos by the statue of legendary naval commander Lord Nelson or admire the 17th-century Trinity Hospital, Greenwich’s oldest building.
Along the way, your guide will point out sights of interest, as well as unique viewpoints or interesting angles, but your private tour also offers the flexibility to go off-course. Perhaps duck down alleyways to admire the historic architecture or rusty old ship signs, stroll along deserted beaches or snap photos of the boats moored along the riverbanks. Finally, end your tour outside the Cutty Sark Pub, where you can continue to explore Greenwich independently or head inside for a beer (own expense).
Please note: This photography tour is suitable for all types of digital cameras including camera phones and tablets/pads.
