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

Zerodegrees

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.

Buenos Aires Café

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.

Very quirky, wonderful atmosphere, food and drink. Puts a completely different slant on Shabby Chic

Excellent cakes and coffee

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.

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.

Greenwich Park

Greenwich Park

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

Royal Observatory Greenwich

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.

Ginger and Bean

A cute coffee shop in Sundridge Park with homemade cakes and toasted sandwiches. The coffee is to die for!

The best Indian food in the most beautiful surroundings and with great friendly service too.

Brockley Market

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

Why not explore the nearby areas of Lee, Hither Green, Kidbrooke, Blackheath, Lewisham, Downham, Catford and Sundridge Park

"Golf was first introduced in England in 1608 at Royal Blackheath Golf Club."

I love this stunning converted coach house set within breathtaking Sundridge Park Golf Course.

Ryan Ninnis

A place so integral and central to modern science, you can learn so much at Royal Greenwich Observatory.
