Area Overview

Greenwich is universally accepted as the “Home of Time”. It is the prime Meridian of the world, with a longitude of zero degrees, and is the place where hemispheres meet. This South East London district combines contemporary architecture and royal heritage as well as being home to the capital’s oldest enclosed Royal Park. As well as a good selection of traditional pubs and award winning fine dining restaurants, Greenwich provides a good mix of designer shops and boutiques selling a range of vintage collectibles and arts and crafts. Its location on the banks of the River Thames allows the area to be easily reached by boat, and it’s also the location for the annual Great River Race.
