Greenwich Park is as beautiful today as when Henry VIII deer roamed the open parkland. Nowadays the deer have their own enclosure behind the gorgeous flower garden, which is one of several delightful gardens around the park. There’s the rose garden by Ranger’s House, a sensory herb garden by St. Mary’s Gate, a bandstand, London’s longest herbaceous border beside Queen’s House and perhaps the most compact Roman remains you’re likely to see.
Although currently closed, there’s an epic children’s playground where your kids can run themselves to a stand-still, while you sit still in the picnic area. And if that still hasn’t tired them out, there’s one of London’s most famous climbs, up the hill to the Royal Observatory, home to The Prime Meridian of The World – Longitude Zero. Here you’ll also find one of London’s finest viewpoints. It’s obligatory to stop and take in the London city skyline, over Docklands, Canary Wharf and the City, all the way back to West London!
