What's happening in Greenwich this week?

There's always something interesting to see or do in Greenwich. Have a look at what's going on when you visit!

Visit Greenwich News

  • Guaranteed to have all true die hard Elvis fans swooning, The O2 is putting on a nine month long special exhibit dedicated to the King of Rock n' Roll. 

  • When you visit Greenwich, you can stand on the Prime Meridian, with a leg in each hemisphere, eastern and western, at the Royal Observatory!

  • A student in Greenwich

    A spot of shopping. When you're a student and spend your life in the discount food aisles picking up dented cans of soup you find it hard to justify such demented spending.  Enter Greenwich!

  • Emirates AirLine

    Kids will just love flying across the river on the Emirates Air Line. It’s the UK’s only urban cable car and runs between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks. It's the nearest thing to flying you'll get without going to the airport

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!

Not just history, museums and of course - the Meridian, but also a lot of green spaces, awesome food and entertainment - Cutty Sark is a must see and so is the Tourist Information Centre!


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.


Take the river boat if visiting from London to see sights along the Thames. Once there, the grounds, museums and village provide a full days worth of exploration for whole family.


We visited Greenwich with friends for a picnic. First we went to Greenwich Market where you can find traditional food from around the world. The view from Greenwich Park was just great.
