Visit Greenwich News

  • Samuel Pepys in Greenwich

    Samuel Pepys has arrived in Greenwich in a brand new exhibition, Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire, Revolution. Pepys is probably the most famous diarist in the world, bigger than Bridget Jones, more attractive than Adrian Mole and, more importantly, not fictional.

  • ATP Tennis at The O2 arena

    ATP tennis is coming to Greenwich! The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals touch down at The O2 arena between 15 and 22 November 2015. Are you coming? Take this opportunity to mix sport and culture and take a look at the rest of Greenwich.

    Visit Greenwich and stand on the Prime Meridian, with a leg in each hemisphere, eastern and western, at the Royal Observatory. You will definitely be having the best of both worlds.

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!
