Royal Museums Greenwich - Spring into Greenwich

When does spring start?
It feels like it's been a long time coming this year, but spring has finally started to arrive in Greenwich.

There are actually three main definitions for when the season starts, coming from astronomy, meteorology and phenology (the study of animal and plant life). But whether you believe spring starts at the equinox or when the daffodils are in bloom, either way, it's time for a nice walk around Greenwich Park!
