Greenwich, from day one
Royal Greenwich is a hive of activity. Take in the Cutty Sark in all its iconic glory or take a stroll to the world-famous Royal Observatory. Position yourself north to reveal the gleaming towers of Canary Wharf, the capital’s premier business district.
From the establishment of Greenwich Mean Time to the birthplace of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, the history of these lands runs through the Royal Borough of Greenwich. This district wholeheartedly embraces the past, but with a foot firmly in the future, connecting the Victorian streets to the dramatic views of the waterfront.
It’s a centuries-long unfinished story that makes this extraordinary enclave like no other.
Live your best life
While being only minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city, an unmistakable out-of-city vibe prevails in Royal Greenwich. That may have something to do with the swathes of spectacular greenery that surround the area, including London’s oldest Royal Park.
The River Gardens has unrivalled access to the finest shopping destinations including Westfield at Stratford and central London – minutes away by car or public transport. If you’re looking to explore closer to home, Greenwich has ample distractions to wile away your weekends. Greenwich town centre – with all its amenities – is half a mile away, and nearby Greenwich market and its array of independent traders offers everything from flowers to antiques.
