The first time I have been to Greenwich and it certainly won’t be the last. I did not get through all the attractions and historical pages in one trip. Some of the attractions are free and some you have to pay for so wise to balance this and see what you are really interested in. Greenwich is a charming suburb. The Royal Navy was based here and their facilities are still here and well worth a look. Beautiful old buildings and you can look at the beautifully painted ceilings in the dining room. This is only open for a short time if you choose to do the tour through the refurbishment of the ceiling. We didn’t want to pay for this and there is a section you can see that is not covered by the scaffolding so you don’t have to pay the money to see some of the ceiling.
The park behind the Royal Navy buildings are beautiful, the Maritime museum is free and then there is the Royal Observatory, the Meridean Line (and you can stand with one foot each side outside the Observatory for free) so plenty to do. My suggestion would be to come and go to Greenwich by ferry.

We had a friend come up to see us for the day, so we went down to Greenwich. It is so handy with the DLR Cutty Sark Stn. As you come out of the Station, there are Shops, Coffee Shops, Bars, Pubs all around. Plenty of places to eat & drink. If you like Street Food, go into Greenwich Market, all under cover, with so many stalls, selling Food from around the World. Also you have Greenwich Park, The Naval College & so much more. Enjoy.

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!
