Why do you find SE10 a great place to live?


"Greenwich is beautiful! "

February 2015


"Welcome to the London's village! If you love the city but it gets too crowded for you sometimes, this is your kind of place. Greenwich offers a mixture of wide open spaces and lower density living areas, but is still situated close enough to the likes of Canary Wharf and London Bridge to truly feel like a part of London."

February 2015


"Fast access to the city, lots of amenities, family friendly, with a suburban feel, thanks to the green-space. Plus you always know what time it is!"

January 2015


"Modern and heritage. Amazing history and places to eat. Especially around Blackheath village. Great area of development and investment."

December 2014


"Greenwich Park is excellent, especially with the Royal Observatory and Maritime Museum, however the lesser known green spaces, including The Heath and Manor House Gardens are also great escapes from the hustle and bustle of the city and are less touristy."

November 2014
