A photographic exhibition of Maritime Greenwich as a World Heritage Site opens on 12 September 2013 at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery in Greenwich, London and continues till 26 September.  The exhibition has been organised by the ICOMOS-UK Cultural Landscapes and Historic Gardens Committee.  The photos, taken by Gavin Kingcome, demonstrate that our visual enjoyment of a place can be enhanced or spoilt by what happens around it.  The exhibition of 42 photos also includes views of the three other World Heritage sites in London - The Tower of London, Westminster and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.  

There is an opening event at 6.30pm on Thursday 12 September 2013 at 6.30pm by landscape architect Hal Moggridge OBE, a member of the ICOMOS-UK Cultural Landscapes and Historic Gardens Committee.  The opening times for the exhibition are Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm, Saturday 11am to 4pm.  The Stephen Lawrence Gallery is in the University of Greenwich, Queen Anne Court, Old Royal Naval College, Park Row, London SE10 9LS.

  • What a fantastic exhibition. As a founder of a small specialist civil engineering consultancy - www.wilsham.co.uk and am great believer in the quality of the external environment around buildings. Far too many great buildings have poor quality asphalt car parking at the front, when they should have an attractive environment which makes one stop and sit down with the kids and enjoy the experience.
