Greenwich Area Guide

Greenwich, is a World Heritage Site and home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Meridian Line.


It's famous landmarks include Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory, and Sir Christopher Wren’s College. One of the many appeals to Greenwich is to enjoy a walk along the River Thames or in Greenwich Park before eating in one of Greenwich’s great selection of restaurants. Greenwich shopping is also excellent, with plenty of quirky, independent shops and the famous markets.


Georgian and Victorian architecture dominates in the town centre which spreads to the west of the park and Royal Naval College. Much of this forms a one-way system around a covered market, Greenwich Market and the Arthouse Greenwich Cinema. Up the hill from the centre, there are many streets of Georgian houses, including the Fan Museum, on Croom's Hill. Nearby at the junction of Croom's Hill with Nevada Street, is Greenwich Theatre, formerly Crowder's Music Hall – one of two Greenwich theatres, the other being the Greenwich Playhouse.


Transport links include; Two railway lines crossing  Greenwich: the Greenwich Line, which runs West to East and follows the route of the London and Greenwich Railway, which was the first railway line in London, and links the South Eastern Main Line with the North Kent Line at Charlton; and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR), which runs North to South.
