If you want something out of the city center and want the idyllic surroundings of London to explore, then I suggest you definitely to Greenwich in the southeast of the city. When you’re there, you might think that this area is not a district, but rather a separate, small place.
You can actually reach Greenwich with all kinds of public transport – bus, subway and also with the boat on the Thames. The latter I have done recently and I can only advise everyone to do well again.
Small place, lots to see
Although this district (at least the core) is relatively quite small, Greenwich has much to offer. The charm of this place is generated by smaller streets, where there are smaller shops. In total here there is a special atmosphere that you really cannot really describe. The most famous place in Greenwich is certainly the Greenwich Park. Not because it is a larger park just, but because you can throw from here a perfect view of the skyline of London, since the park has a huge hill. Just because of that look worth the trip to Greenwich already.

What Greenwich has to offer
Certainly is another major attraction the National Maritime Museum, which is one of the royal museums in Greenwich. Here you can watch first hand countless stories and adventures of seafaring history. These Museum and the Cutty Sark, the last tea clipper belongs (sail-freighter), which you can go into the world. Another attraction that stands out the Royal Observatory Greenwich out is a small observatory in the middle of Greenwich Park. The Old Royal Naval College is also part of an impressive Baroque building is a UNESCO World Heritage. The former royal palace Queen’s House is also very impressive.
A small charming place is still the Greenwich Market. The historic market right in the heart of the district, is the only market in the world within a world heritage site, which is Greenwich. This market has been around since 1737, you get on here about everything from food over souvenirs to clothes and antiques. The market is not very big, but quite cozy and nice.
Greenwich’s just nice that already knew the English kings who resided in the 15th century here. The place is the way how “Grennitsch” pronounced; the “W” is therefore not played a part. Just on the edge, because many pronounce it wrong. You can also by the way Greenwich DLR reach (Cutty Sark Station). With the way it underground is a little further, because you’d have here in North Greenwich to get out and then complete a not very short walk away. But you can also take the Emirates Airline, a huge cable car across the Thames, with which I could never go, unfortunately, because the weather somehow always was that the train was closed by North Greenwich. Greenwich simply invites you to linger, whether for tea time or to enjoy a stroll.
Greenwich – always worth a visit! Do this a relaxing morning, go by boat there and enjoy the beauty of this place!
