Timely visit
Oct. 2016 • Friends
Was walking back from Greenwich and saw this remarkable building and decided to investigate....was take back by what I found inside..... All the history of the area and sections I just found so interesting....and a place to navigate a ship which was quite an experience ....seeing how they used to do underwater diving a while ago took the mind back a bit.....very interesting though....
A nice coffee after the browse around the building was just what the Dr ordered
Will return

Delightful
Aug. 2017 • Couples
Earlier this week we visited the Greenwich Heritage Centre at Woolwich. It was delightful. We were going to visit the Woolwich Arsenal Museum but apparently this closed last year due to lack of funding. GHC is well worth a visit. Admission is free and it is a very bright, clean, modern museum. It tells the history of the Woolwich Arsenal area with emphasis on the history of the Royal Regiment of Artillery and its links with the town of Woolwich. Staff were friendly and helpful. Plan to spend up to two hours on your visit. The general area is interesting, there is a market nearby and it's a couple of hundred yards from the river Thames and the Thames path which will take you to Greenwich which is about seven miles away.

A well-presented museum of Woolwich and the former Royal Arsenal.
Sep. 2016
My grandfather worked at the Royal Arsenal 1910-1950 and lived in Woolwich. So I was fascinated to see the displays, documents and original artefacts which are on show, and learned quite a bit about the working and local living conditions of the time. The lady on the front desk was most helpful too, and gave me details of the local history group which might have more details of my ancestor. Not really geared for small children, but excellent for all other ages. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it is really quite small - an hour was enough to see everything.

Greenwich Naval Museum worth a visit
Oct. 2014 • Couples
The Greenwich Hospital was Charles the Second's attempt to rival Les Invalides in Paris, built by Louis IV. It is now the site of a major museum of maritime Britain, covering both the Royal and the merchant navy. The chapel and the painted hall are seventeenth century gems: the old sailors admitted to the hospital must have felt that Heaven had arrived early. The Cutty Sark, a clipper that sailed from Liverpool to Melbourne and return in 124 days is a separate museum adjoin the entrance. Greenwich is a terminus of the Dockland Light Railway, but a far better way to get to Grrenwich and return for a tourist is the River Bus starting at The London Eye/Millennium Pier.

Could be more interesting

The museum is poor. Should have more attractions inside. Outside you have the famous line of the Greenwich Meridian. But you have to pay more than 8 pounds for this???

Visit Greenwich

Greenwich is a must see for me as it is quite different from the usual quite crowded seen of Central London - there is a lot of open green space, amazing places to see (try Cutty Sark if you are with kids) and very good food. The lady at the Tourism Bureau of VisitGreenwich went out of her way to recommend things to do. And of course - we went on a boat!

The painted hall was wonderful and the whole area well kept and very interesting. Good visitor centre and excellent transport connections. You cold spend 2 days in Greenwich and not see it all

How can you not appreciate a place of such historical significance? My daughters were a little over awed by the place (10 and 6).
But my oldest daughter now has a better understanding of time zones around the world.
A day in and Greenwich is a must on a trip to London.

Brilliant place to visit and a must if you have children as there is plenty for them to do and get involved.

There is a café on site and as there was no seating it shows it was very popular.

There is also a "Micro Brewery" and you can smell the hops when you walk in the café. Unfortunately I did not have the time to sample the various brews.

Very enjoyable visit

We recently visited the Bob Hope Exhibition at the Greenwich Heritage Centre. The exhibition was excellent with many fascinating exhibits and a lot of information about Bob Hope's early life in the UK. Sadly the exhibition is only temporary and is due to finish fairly soon. The Heritage Centre is located in the grounds of the former Royal Arsenal. Within the grounds there are a number of impressive buildings, an interesting museum, a good quality pub and a very welcoming cafe/restaurant. The grounds face the river and have their own Thames Clipper pier; this offers a regular and fast boat service to the City and Westminster. The local train service is also very good with the Royal Arsenal Docklands Light Railway station only a 3-minute walk from the entrance gate to the Arsenal grounds.
