Knees-up in a brewery

I was delighted to attend the official opening last night of the 'Discover Greenwich' visitor centre at the Old Royal Naval College, which has been renovated and improved in a multi-million pound project. It includes a new micro-brewery, echoing the one that existed on the site hundreds of years ago for residents of the Naval Hospital. Mayor of London Boris Johnson did the honours, announcing that it was, of course, proof that people can still organise a knees-up in a brewery. He then dutifully pulled a pint or two for the cameras. The centre is a big improvement on what was there before, with exhibits interpretting the rich history of the world heritage site. I can't do it justice on here, but the 853 blog has some great pictures.
