A locals' guide to Greenwich and surrounding areas

"Hop on a train from New Cross Gate Station direct to Shoreditch and stations close to the City and Canary Wharf."

Divyesh Bhanderi

"New Cross is as arty and cultural as Shoreditch and Soho, but with a strong South London identity..."

Chris Venter

"Having a picnic, chatting with friends or just reading a book in the sun..Greenwich Park is bliss on a sunny day!"

Mediterranean food in the heart of Greenwich along bustling Greenwich Church Street. A wide and varied menu of dishes and cuisines and a great place for all the family.
