Lying to the south east of London, World Heritage site Greenwich is a very picturesque borough replete with Georgian architecture and steeped in history, due to the grand Palace Placentia, which was built in the 15th century and housed many of Britain's monarchs. The River Thames, Blackheath, Deptford and Westcombe Park border Greenwich, and it is probably best known for giving its name to the Greenwich Meridian (0 degrees) and Greenwich Mean Time. The exact Meridian's location is marked in The Royal Observatory, which used to play an important role in Britain's astronomical research, but is now a fascinating museum, with a curious array of clocks and astronomy instruments.
The Royal Borough of Greenwich is an area of London that thoroughly deserves the 'Royal' in its title. Henry VIII was born in the Palace of Placentia and lived there with his doomed wife Anne Boleyn, who gave birth to Elizabeth I there. Elizabeth then went on to use the Palace as a summer home with her sister Mary. James I also used the palace, but by the time of the Restoration it had fallen into disuse and was torn down. Where it used to stand remains Greenwich Park, a stunning green space that is great for a picnic in the summer months. Here you will find the Observatory and the Queen's House, which has a very ornate spiral staircase.
Being located by the waterfront means that Greenwich played an important part in trading and naval history and today the area is still rife with activity along the waterway, including the Greenwich Regatta, which was first held in 1785 and competitive rowing competitions, alongside those who do it just for fun. The Old Royal Naval College, built by Christopher Wren is also in Greenwich and is now home to a museum about the area's naval history. Perhaps the most beloved of Greenwich's relics is The Cutty Sark, a well preserved, 19th century clipper ship, which is displayed along the banks of The Thames. It was recently damaged in a fire, but restoration work is being carried out and this is on view as restorers’ progress. Greenwich is also home to The Gipsy Moth IV, which was previously used to circumnavigate the Globe.
For those who find all that history a bit too educational for their tastes, you will also find The O2 arena (formerly the Millennium Dome) nearby, which holds large-scale musical extravaganzas and festivals. Greenwich also has a very delectable range of shops, from high street brands to quirky, independent boutiques such as 360 Degrees Vintage and Belle; as well as antique shops for a conversation piece souvenir, possibly a ship in a bottle or a map of uncharted waters given the surroundings. As Greenwich is a little farther out from the centre of London, it feels more like a chic village than part of a bustling metropolis. Greenwich also has a great selection of eateries, from gastro pubs to chains such as Pizza Express or decadent cakes at The Rhodes Bakery.
Greenwich can be reached via The Docklands Light Railway, which provides picturesque views of the area as you ride. The railway links up to the Jubilee, District and Hammersmith and City tube lines, so you can easily access major transport hubs and other areas of London. If you want to stay in Greenwich, there are ranges of boutique and chain hotels, which offer affordable rooms, or if you don't want to be too far out from the centre of London, you can stay in South Quay or Bermondsey and catch the DLR from nearby.
