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.

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.

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

What locals say about SE3

  1. In the Royal Borough of Greenwich, a great village with easy rail access to London via rail. Great shops, cafes plus a lively market across the heath in Greenwich. Live music & family activities at Blackheath Halls. It's great whatever age or stage you are at in life! A little green oasis in the midst of S/E

  2. The numerous outstanding private and state primary schools.

  3. For breakfast, I often go to The Green Cafe in Greenwich which is friendly and popular with the locals. For something a little more upmarket it's got to be Chapters in Blackheath. There are also some incredible gastro-pubs in the area. My favourites are The Vanbrugh and the recently refurbished The Pilot.

  4. Kidbrooke Village is nearing completion and is providing Blackheath, Kidbrooke and the surrounding neighbourhoods with a great opportunity for growth and regeneration.
