Once an ancient village on the banks of the Thames, this 21st Century London neighbourhood is dedicated to green parks and playtime, social spaces, historic monuments and a world-famous market. There’s everything on tap to help you get the most out of life in bustling Greenwich.
There is always something bringing people here to where two hemispheres meet. Artisan brewers rub shoulders with art and culture. Style connoisseurs delve for treasures in independent boutiques and the bustle and buzz of Greenwich Market. Families enjoy time at the park, and there’s even room for countryside pursuits.
A buzzing neighbourhood attracts a spirit to the area, filled with local independent stores you can depend on to sell everything from fresh produce, butchery, fish, and wine, to flowers for the table
