had an amazing weekend here with my son. Went to all the free museums, plus a couple we paid for-worth every penny. Plenty of places to eat and drink, and not to busy, the market is a must!!!

Vintage markets, antique-ish markets, food stalls for every taste, the vast and free National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory, the old Naval College and a great view of all this with the City of London, Docklands and the peninsula laid out before you from the park - what's not to like?

There is a lot to see and do in Greenwich and this recently renovated gallery shouldn't be over looked. Free to enter and next to the Maritime Museum it's packed with portraits and paintings of battles with paintings by less known artists in the rear rooms. We visited on a very wet and grey day but on a sunny day the view up to the observatory from the orangerie at the rear of the gallery must be lovely. Give yourself an hour to wander round the rooms - it's worth it!!

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.
