Best choice for getting from Greenwich to London

Our cruise ship is docking in Greenwich. National Rail is doing a 2 for 1 on attractions. What kind of ticket and travel from Greenwich do I need to do to take advantage of this promotion?

If I buy a Travelcard, do any of the rail lines count? Which station would I leave from and buy the tickets?

The nicest way to get from Greenwich to London is by boat. Either the "commuter" - Thames clipper, or one of the slower boats with commentary. Many of London's landmarks can be seen/reached from the Thames - Tower, St Pauls, London Eye, Houses of Parliament. Plus Greenwich itself which is also lovely.

In order to use the two for one offers you should buy a Travelcard at Greenwich National Rail ticket office. Travelcards sold at the DLR station won't do as they are issued by Transport for London, you'll need to buy NR cards on orange and cream paper stock.

One day cards for zones 1 and 2 cost £7 for off peak travel, £8.40 to include peak travel (before 0930 on weekdays; off peak starts at 0931 on weekdays and is at any time at weekends and public holidays).

If you're staying in London for four or more days then seven day Travelcards may be better value at £29.20 with no peak / off peak constraints.

The national rail station is a fair distance out 5-10 minutes from what I discovered not even sure whether it would be easier just to buy a single from Cutty Sark to the train station on DLR and buy the railcard there. Just a thought if you have lugagge could be easier.
