We took a boat trip to Greenwich. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet and there is plenty to see - museums, the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark.

Absolutely lovely village feel with beautiful buildings open space plenty of places to visit parks to picnic in and shops to browse.

Worthy of more than the one day we had but we will certainly go back!

From our City Cruise boat we walked around the Cutty Sark went up the hill to the Royal Observatory and had a picnic in the park. We headed for the Naval Museum and bought local ice creams.

A lovely afternoon was had by all. The children blew off steam and thoroughly enjoyed the day!

A must do and only 5 miles from central London and for us a really enjoyable 40 minute boat cruise from Westminster pier!!!

Tip: If you like paintings do not missed the painted ceilings at the Royal Naval college worth the £10 to get in £5 for children . ..little ones not allowed in ( think under 6) It rivals the Cistene chapel!

Took a river trip up to Greenwich from Westminster visiting the Cutty Sark and Maritime museum,lovely grounds and parks plenty of room for the kids to run around unfortunately due to boat going back to Westminster we did not have time to go to the Royal Observatory which is something i have always wanted to do,so that will be my next trip to Greenwich !

It is well worth a visit for at least a day. Take the water taxi[use oyster card]. Lots to see there too. The last tea shipper-the Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum with Admiral Nelson'e coat with the deadly bullet hole, the National Observatory, world home of time at the top of the hill with amazing views. Henry VIII born here too. Much more.
