Battle Ships

Little seafarers will dance a jig at the news that HMS Illustrious is in town. This weekend is the 70th anniversary of the Battle of The Atlantic, and the enormous aircraft carrier is in town at Greenwich to commemorate the date. There will be huge queues to get on board and have a poke around the boat, so get there early (not suitable for prams). And if you’re still in the area (or anywhere in South London) at 7pm on Saturday, keep your eyes on the skies for an impressive (and teeny bit terrifying) military fly-past. Free. Saturday and Sunday 10am-2pm. More here
