Royal Borough of Greenwich
Visit Greenwich, the place where hemispheres meet and royal heritage combines with contemporary architecture. It’s home to a World Heritage Site, The O2 arena, Britain’s only urban cable car, London’s prettiest royal park and the Prime Meridian of the World - longitude zero.
Whatever your interest there’s something you’ll love - fabulous baroque artistry in the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College, designer-maker arts and crafts in Greenwich Market, and the beautifully conserved Cutty Sark, the fastest ship of her age. Explore Britain’s momentous naval history at the National Maritime Museum and enjoy the views in a riverside pub. Speed down the river in a streamlined catamaran or cruise through London’s landmarks to Greenwich, the mighty Thames Barrier and the historic Royal Arsenal in Woolwich.
