You can get all sorts of exciting and interesting stuff in the markets, boutiques, galleries, delicatessens, craft shops and emporiums of Greenwich, so make a list and get going.

Greenwich Market has been here for hundreds of years and today it’s better than ever. A big favourite with Londoners, it’s overflowing with stalls and independent shops run by vintage clothing sellers, milliners, collectors and all sorts of others. And there’s a whole range of delicious street food from all over the world to keep you going while you wander.

GCDA recently opened ‘Made in Greenwich’, a brand new shop based in the heart of historic Greenwich.  Made in Greenwich is packed with locally made and exclusive goods that reflect the cultural diversity of the area. You will find everything here, from hand-crafted jewellery made of pottery salvaged from the river Thames to vibrant wax fabric lampshades. Foodies can take home spice rubs, award-winning Wolfe’s Shrubs fruit cordials and honey from a local school.

RMG Shop 1

Pick up the perfect souvenir in the gift shops at the National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, Old Royal Naval College and Fan Museum. Get yourself a little telescope at the Observatory, some tea on board Cutty Sark or a model ship in the National Maritime Museum.

Greenwich Market 2

Greenwich is famous for its designer-makers. Greenwich Market’s selling ethos is based around them and many of the little shops and boutiques that line the inside of the Market are run by designer-makers who started with a stall. Head for Clocktower Market up the road for antiques, trinkets and other cool stuff.
