Daniel Day-Lewis. Born: Greenwich, Borough of Greenwich, South-East London, 1957.  One of the most celebrated actors of his generation.  ‘I do know where I come from. I particularly miss south-east London – the front lines of Deptford and Lewisham and New Cross and Charlton – because that’s my patch. But maybe I have a rather sentimental relationship to it. The sort that exiles tend to have.’ (Time Out Magazine, 2008)  Other famous acting Londoners: Gary Oldman, Christopher Lee.

And so our time in London (for the time being!) has drawn to a close with our final day spent sightseeing in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Next we're heading to Southampton to board the beautiful Queen Mary 2 for an eight day voyage to New York. We'll be totally disconnected so no updates for a little while. See you on the other side of the pond!  #visitlondon #lovelondon #londonpass #cityscape
