Greenwich is always left out in our London visit becasue it's not that near center. I have been living in UK many years but ever come over to see it. It is really beautiful and historical. The museum is wonderful for kids and also for me and my husband. It's free. This place is worth coming for a day trip. highly recommended.

I use to love spending Sunday mornings in Greenwich in the 1980's and I still recommend it in the 2010s. So much to see and do. Love the market, the pubs, the restaurants and the attractions. Maritime Museum and the Queens House are my favourite.

We visited this area as part of a trip to the maritime museum, queen Anne house and the royal observatory. a walk through the park and onto the high street is well worth the extra time. There is a market, which was lovely and busily, lots of quirky unique shops.

Greenwich is a lovely day trip easily accessible from London via tube and DLR. The train through Canary Wharf en route is enjoyable and felt like a glimpse of a futuristic city. Upon arrival in Greenwich I walked passed the Cutty Sark, the Royal Naval College, the market, and then walked up through Greenwich Park up to the observatory to see the Meridian Line. It’s a thrill to straddle the line with one leg in the east and one in the west! The views over the College, the river and to the O2 are gorgeous.
Well worth the trip!

Greenwich has a number of fascinating museums: Cutty Sark, National Maritime, Queen Anne's House, Royal Observatory and the little known Fan Museum. By themselves, they'll take a full day. The Market is lovely, with a few pubs and great food stalls inside - plus, small businesses with unique gifts on offer. You can get here by train from London Bridge, or on the DLR; but, the best way (if you're a tourist) is on the Thames Clipper - this boat is a lovely way to see London from the river.

There are many festivals here throughout the year, so it's always worth a look to see what's going on. There are fascinating spots like The Painted Hall on the campus of the old Royal Naval College, now home to the University of Greenwich. Tons of history here - birthplace of Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I (both baptised in St. Alfege's Church, which you can also visit).

There are fantastic pubs and a number of super restaurants dotted about as well. There's a small playhouse that puts on some great theatre. There's also a hidden jazz club in town.

Greenwich is a real gem, with even more to discover than I've listed here.
