Where do Lee locals go?


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


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

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.


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


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.

Good Thymes Supper Club

A monthly supper club inside someone's home in Ladywell, where local people come to meet and taste some good home-cooked food. Every month there's a different theme.

Greenwich Park

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

Royal Observatory Greenwich

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.

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.

Brockley Market

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

Susan Clark Interiors

A lovely independent interiors shop, selling fab pieces of furniture, fabrics, small gifts and unique cards.

Oxleas Wood Cafe and Severndroog Castle

Severndroog Castle tea rooms do super food and jolly posh teas in the considerately renovated folly albeit with sometimes random opening hours, check the website! Oxleas Wood Cafe is always open and always makes for a pleasant break with plenty of space for the kids to play and dogs to be run.

Heap's Sausages

Head here for the best breakfast in Greenwich! A great local family-run business...

Al Pancino at The Spread Eagle

Amazing food and service. The best Italian food in Greenwich.

National Maritime Museum

Lots of quirky installations, a great little café and an ice cream parlour here too!
