There is probably not a London suburb with more intense historical connections, more diversity and more astonishing buildings and artefacts than Greenwich. There are sections on MARITIME GREENWICH – home of the Maritime museum and the CUTTY SARK; ROYAL GREENWICH – Greenwich Park was Henry VIII’s favourite residence and where he met Anne Boelyn; SCIENTIFIC GREENWICH – home of the Royal Observatory and GMT and of course The Dome itself…What’s it going to be like compared to similar vast jamborees – the Great Exhibition of 1851 and the Festival Britain of 1951, what is that strange fabric stretched over those yellow spikes and WHO is going to settle in the 1400-home Millennium Village, to be opened in 2000, with the remains of the old gasworks lying a couple of feet below?]]>
