Be a Local Tourist in Greenwich

A quick mention for those interested in Greenwich and its surrounding areas - cultural venues will soon be offering special discounts and promotions for nine days.

Greenwich Council tells us:

"From Saturday 20 March to Sunday 28 March 2010, a host of popular Greenwich attractions, cultural venues and restaurants are throwing open their doors and offering special discounts and promotions to local people.

The Council has teamed up with participating venues in Eltham, Greenwich and Woolwich to run events across the borough."

The Be A Local Tourist event is designed to get residents out and about taking advantage of the area's culture.

Residents must show copies of the event leaflet when entering their chosen venues. These can be found in libraries, leisure centres, participating venues and the tourist information centre. Non-residents are also welcome to take part in local events and special offers.

Aw thanks. It's just great isn't it, looking forward to Spring in London - so many things to do. A trip on a boat on the Thames sounds perfect.
