[遊記] 倫敦自助遊 – Greenwich格林威治一天遊

霖霖問:點解香港的時間是GMT + 8小時,GMT是甚麼?我說GMT代表格林威治時間,她又問為什麼要以格林威治時間去開始算世界各地的時間,我就說那我帶你去找答案吧﹗

Greenwich格林威治是在泰晤士河南面,距離倫敦大約30分鐘DLR/車程的一個地方。在十五世紀初已經成為皇室的居住地方。在大約十七世紀,皇家天文台正式坐落於此地,及後這個地方更成為訓練航海員的地方,對正個中世紀的航海事業發展有很大的貢獻。在二十世紀,英國皇室在這裡成立了全英國最大的航海博物館,及後這一帶的建築更成為了聯合國UNESCO世界文化遺產之一。

格林威治其實離倫敦不遠,而且坐車十分方更,可以作一日遊,最好選在天朗氣清的時候前住,可以悠閒地在綠油油的草地上野餐,享受在十七世紀古典建築下睡覺,渡過一個悠閒的週末。

[遊記] 英國倫敦自助遊 – 十大特色地道市集

倫敦有著大大小小數十個市集,而在倫敦市中心最有名及比較多遊客去的主要有以上的市集。隨著商場超市的出現,市集對於我們來說已經不是必需品,這讓不少市集攤檔推陳出新,更多特色的貨品和食物都在這些市集誕生,所以逛市集變成一種尋寶的活動,也算是支持小店反對大企業的一種態度。(http://www.streetsensation.co.uk/markets.htm)

感覺:

每到一個地方,我都一定會去參觀當地的市集,有些市集賣衫,有些賣古董,而我最喜愛的就是賣食物的市集。出差的週未,去了一敞倫敦當地的有名市集,真是一個充滿地道特色的活動。在Portobella Rd的咖啡店買早餐,跟著人群尋找寶藏。下午到Borough Market,吃來自世界各地的美食,是另一種感受倫敦多源文化的好方法。
