My favourite Sunday afternoon spot in London: Greenwich

Take the DLR down to Cutty Sark (zone 2) sit in the front and pretend to drive it. You can also get the Jubilee line to North Greenwich or get there by cable car on the Emirates airline or by water (river boat). There is some street parking too but you might have a bit of a walk.

Here you will get the village vibes and forget about the hustle and bustle of central London. Walk around the market, and the park. Sit down and relax. Visit the free exhibitions (e.g. Astronomy Photographer of the Year). Take in the views across the cities at the top of the hill.

  • Visit the National Maritime Museum
  • Go to the Royal Observatory
  • Visit the Cutty Sark
  • Look at the Greenwich Meridian (GMT = Greenwich Mean Time, longitude 0 degrees the separating the east and western hemisphere) You can see the green laser
  • The Armada Portrait of Elizabeth I https://www.rmg.co.uk/queens-house
  • Walk around the incredibly regal Old Royal Naval college designed by Christopher Wren.
  • Greenwich is also home to The O2 (formerly the Millennium Dome).

Drink

 

Food

  • Pie and Mash at Goddards Greenwich . Great veggie pies, double pie and double mash with liquor is a must!

  • So much amazing food at this market, although you might struggle to find somewhere to sit.
