We began where we left off last time at Honor Oak and headed north through town houses onto Blackheath, then in to Greenwich Park. This is 0 degrees longitude and you can easily imagine seeing the whole universe from the Observatory. It’s going to be hard to trump the scenery on any future stage of the spiral walk round London from Kings Cross to Gravesend.
The Millennium Peninsula is a strange place for a walker. There’s plenty of space and pathways. But you’re right by the entrance to the Dartford Tunnel, and traffic backing up from all roads around in a slow moving crawl. Cross the tunnel road then cross another dual carriage way – empty this time – and another one. So many roads to the Dome.
