ATP tennis has arrived Greenwich! Some of the best players in the world are in town at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in The O2 arena until 22 November 2015.

Global tennis titans including Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray can visit the Royal Observatory and stand with a foot in each hemisphere, east and west.

Or, if they ask very nicely, we could tell them the Meridian Line also runs through Greenwich Park Tennis Centre and cuts a court in two! This could be one of the only places in the world where you can serve to an opponent in another hemisphere.

If you’re coming along to see the tennis, make sure you see some of the rest of Greenwich too. The Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich Market, and Greenwich Park are all just a few minutes away from The O2 on MBNA Thames Clippers boats and you can ride on the Emirates Air Line cable car or climb over the venue while points are being played below you, at Up at The O2.

Stay in Greenwich so you don’t have to rush into a crowded underground after a late match – there are lots of fantastic places to stay on our Accommodation pages, from four star hotels to quality self catering, and all of them are within easy reach of The O2.
