An independent coffeeshop with a gorgeous sun trap of a garden that serves an amazing full brunch menu.


Fantastic olive bread and a great place to pick up a sneaky afternoon snack!

Buenos Aires Café

The best Argentinian steak restaurant ever, where the walls are covered in iconic photos taken by its owner. Definitely ask for an upstairs table overlooking Blackheath.


Such great service from this independent restaurant. The pizzas and the seafood are highly recommended!


The food and wide range of beers brewed in house make this place so popular! They do scrumptious, fresh stonebaked pizzas and the views of Blackheath are great. A nice place for a drink and food.

Brockley Market

Award-winning, bustling market selling seasonal produce and delicious street food.

The Point

One of the most secluded spots with amazing views over London. Not a tourist in sight and the perfect place for a picnic too.

Jam Circus

A quirky pub that serves good food. It's also child friendly during the day.

The Gantry

This delightful restaurant and bar is cosy inside during the winter, yet there's an amazing garden for the summer months.

The observatory is a great place for all ages to visit. There are usually a number of exhibitions for all ages giving a history of time and space and the architecture is wonderful. During the evening you can see the green laser across the sky that shows the meridian line.

Going for a run is never dull with this on your doorstep...

The Greenwich Vintage Market

Some great unusual finds here and it's open every day of the week!
