If you climb to the top of the hill you can see for miles .if you have imagination, you can see how London has grown and developed over the centuries. Gorgeous park land to wander in ..best fish and chips in have tasted in a long time

Greenwich has lots to see and do for everyone. We prefer it best in summer when you can picnic in the parks. It is lovely anytime round. You can check out the pier, the Cutty Sark, The Royal Observatory and the museum, walk under the Thames, check out the market and lots more.

I come here several times a year, but especially when the trees are green and leafy. It's also good to take people to where GMT starts. In the winter you will often find folks sledding here. The views of the city from here are also quite nice.

It is worth spending time walking in the park and enjoying the vast expanse of green and variety of trees, particulary if you take a picnic. It is one of my favourite parks as it is well maintained, however be aware that it does have closing times.

Greenwich is rich with history, such as the Cutty Sark ship, the Royal Navy College, National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory, etc., and easily accessible via London's tube system. Also, Greenwich Park is a LARGE hillside green space for walking, sitting, or however you might enjoy it. Many nice little surprises, such as the small brick tower we noticed near the... More

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
