Cutty Sark and the Prime Meridian (London, England)

3 metro trips away, the Cutty Sark is at Canary Wharf, about an hour from mid-London (or 2 hours by boat). This was actually more interesting than we thought.

Being Sunday, the staff were outside lolling on the sidewalk, smoking and one guy had his arm around what looked like a 18mo old baby.
