We (Gerri and Mitch from Houston, Carrie and Kris) took the Original London Walks Tour of Greenwich. We set out by boat from the Tower of London. After arriving in Greenwich, we got an overview of the key sights. Then our guide made sure we were viewing the Observatory so we could see the ball on the tower move from the bottom to reach the top at exactly 13:00 (would have been noon without daylight savings time). My trusty Timex was perfect. After lunch, Mitch and Gerri toured the Cutty Sark and all the other "must-sees" in Greenwich.
