Pirates, Greenwich and Johnny Depp

Not far along the River Thames from Greenwich where Johnny Depp is currently filming the latest Pirates of the Carribean film is the area of Wapping, so named as it was here that the Pirates were chained to riverbed and the tide would wash over them until they were inflated ‘whoppers’. The pub nearby was a favourte of trusted Captain turned infamous pirate, William Kidd in the 18th Century. Visit the Pirates gallows and have a pint in one of the famous riverside pubs en-route to Greenwich on your private tour of Greenwich. Contact British Tours
