The National Maritime Museum is just out of the picture to the left.

The building in the foreground is The Queens House, which is a former royal residence. The Queens House and the two wings at the end of the colonnades are used by the National Maritime Museum for exhibits but are separate and also used for other purposes.

The group of buildings with the two domes are the old Royal Naval College.

The area on the other side of the Thames is commonly referred to as The Docklands or The London Docklands, although that was only a small part of the Port of London docks. The Millwall Docks were just across the river and the South Dock and West India Docks just behind that.
Neat to have the precise names of locations and buildings. I was going to label as Greenwich University, and though all buildings where part of the same complex, but some other picture on were not very exact on their description...Skyline at the background was the hook..
Working on the pic...

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.
