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.

Susan Clark Interiors

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


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.

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.

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.


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


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

The Cutty Sark

A really cosy pub, animal friendly, dining with a view and the best Sunday lunches in Greenwich!

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

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

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

"I have lived in Shooters hill for the last 10 years. It is a very quiet and pleasant area. I like the woods which is near my house and the big Green attached to it, it's a great place to walk my dog and he loves it! In the snowy winter months the children use sledges to slide down the snowy steep Green. I have lived in this area the longest I have ever lived anywhere and hope to live here many more years."

  1. About Shooters Hill

    Shooter's Hill (or Shooters Hill) is a district in South East London within the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It borders the London Borough of Bexley. It lies north of Eltham and south of Woolwich. With a height of 423 feet, it is one of the highest points in London. Shooter's Hill also gives its name to the A road which passes through east to west and is part of the A207 road, the A2 road, and also Watling Street. This is not to be confused with another part of the former Watling Street known as Shoot-Up Hill, which forms part of the A5 in Kilburn in the north-west of the city. It reputedly takes its name from the practice of archery there during the Middle Ages, although the name is also commonly linked to its reputation as a haunt for highwaymen. Shooter's Hill is served by many Transport for London bus services connecting it with areas including Woolwich, Eltham, Greenwich, Bexleyheath, Thamesmead, Lewisham and Crystal Palace.The closest rail link to the area is Welling railway station.
