Greenwich

Overview

Approximately 7 miles from central London the Royal Borough of Greenwich is a world heritage site and now a Royal borough. It is steeped in history and is famous for its maritime history and as the home of the Greenwich Meridian Line (0° longitude) and Greenwich Mean Time. Other landmarks include the Naval College, the National Maritime museum, the Queens House, the Royal Observatory and the Cutty Sark. The royal palace was the birthplace of many members of the House of Tudor, including Henry VIII and Elizabeth I.

"A picnic in the park, a stroll by the river, a shopping trip to the market, a visit to the Cutty Sark. Greenwich is brilliant!"

Mr Reid SE10

Parks

The most historic of all Royal Parks, Greenwich Park dates back to Roman times. From the highest point it offers amazing views of London’s skyline. The park is part of Greenwich World Heritage Site, host to the Prime Meridian Line and the old Royal Observatory, and near the National Maritime Museum. There is a small deer park where you can see red and fallow deer. There are beautiful gardens including the Herb Garden, Rose Garden and The Queen’s Orchard. There are 3 cafes when you need to re-fuel. It is a fantastic park for strolling through, having a picnic, kicking a ball around or just watching the world go by.
