What locals say about Greenwich

  1. Green open space, artisan shops and only 20 minutes to central London!

  2. Greenwich is beautiful!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

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

  6. 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.

About Greenwich

Greenwich is a district of south London, England, located in the London Borough of Greenwich. Greenwich is best known for its maritime history and as giving its name to the Greenwich Meridian and Greenwich Mean Time. The town became the site of a Royal palace, the Palace of Placentia from the 15th century, and was the birthplace of many in the House of Tudor, including Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. The palace fell into disrepair during the English Civil War and was rebuilt as the Royal Naval Hospital for Sailors by Sir Christopher Wren and his assistant Nicholas Hawksmoor. Greenwich is bordered by Deptford Creek and Deptford to the west; the former industrial centre of the Greenwich Peninsula, and the residential area of Westcombe Park to the east; the river Thames to the north; and the A2 and Blackheath common to the south.
