Greenwich is one of only four Royal London Boroughs and its green, leafy streets and relaxed community are more than deserving of the title. This part of south east London has everything you can think of, including historic sites of interest, parks and open spaces and a vibrant and busy night life.
Greenwich is perhaps most famous of all for being the location for Greenwich Mean Time, the prime global time meridian which was first set in 1847 in the Royal Observatory. If you visit Greenwich you can actually stand astride this meridian, with officially one foot in the east and one foot in the west!
Along with the Royal Observatory Greenwich has a long list of sites to see which might be on your wish list including the National Maritime Museum and the Cutty Sark. If you’re a fan of art the Queen’s House is worth a visit, a gallery of historic pieces throughout the ages.
Greenwich Park is a very special outside space, and if you want to start your day in a different way you can join one of the open air yoga classes that take place daily by the bandstand. It’s also the ideal way to get access to the river, where you can enjoy a trip along the Thames.
For something completely different, book a trip in the Emirates Air Line, the first cable car in the UK which offers panoramic views of the capital from high up in the air. Climb aboard if you dare!
When the sun sets on another action-packed day, Greenwich still has much to offer. The O2 hosts some of the top stars from around the world and offers everything from music concerts to wrestling events, and much more besides too.
