  • Greenwich + Docklands Festival 2016

    Greenwich + Docklands International Festival is back with a boom this June! Nine days of outdoor theatre, music and dance and nearly all of it absolutely free!

  • Above and Beyond

    A few days ago I was at Above and Beyond at the National Maritime Museum. I flew like a goose, following the leader of our migrating flock as we swooped over the woods and mountains. It was great!

  • 11 Greenwich Festivals

    Summer's on the way and Greenwich has lots of exciting festivals and fetes to look forward to. We're good at festivals and 2016 is going to be a cracker. Here are eleven dates for your diary!

  • Park it in the Market

    On the last Thursday of every month Greenwich Market is home to an evening of classic cars and bikes, great music and street food.  The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming as visitors wander around the classic cars and chat to their owners.

  • A Mascot for Greenwich

    What would a Greenwich mascot be? We couldn’t decide. What is so reminiscent of Greenwich that everybody would instantly think of the place when they saw it. There are lots of images and objects to choose from...

  • Cutty Sark and Nannie

    Cutty Sark, the most famous tea clipper in the world, is in a fabulously glassed-off dry dock on the riverside in Greenwich. Her name comes from Tam O’Shanter, a poem by Robbie Burns.

  • A day in Greenwich

    Getting around Greenwich on foot is incredibly easy, because it's very compact and everything is close together. For example, walking from Greenwich Pier to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park only takes fifteen minutes.

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!

We have been here on numerous occasions and it always engages us, lovely markets, quirky shops, history, Cutty Sark, Greenwich Park. What more can you want from London?

We loved all the little shops, the boat trip to reach it, & the overall feel of this unique area. I left my iPad in a coffee shop & someone came out to the sidewalk to give it to me!
