What visitors to Greenwich are saying...

Greenwich is an ideal part of London to spend a day or two visiting. But don't take our word for it. Look!

A local friend suggested that we visit Greenwich - so glad they did! There is a great craft market with lots of handmade items - great for gift shopping. A great way to spend the day.
