Royal Greenwich-London

Royal Greenwich lies on the banks of the River Thames and is home to the beautiful Royal Greenwich Park- a 183 acre park and London’s oldest enclosed Royal park, with breathtaking views of the London skyline, flower gardens, duck pond and even home to a small herd of deer.

Overlooking Greenwich Park, is the Royal Observatory, site of the Greenwich meridian line, and the official British measurements of feet and yards.

Known for its maritime history, Greenwich is home to the Cutty Sark, a restored 19th-century clipper ship, that was used in the tea and wool trade between the UK, Australia, and China.

The heritage of Greenwich centers on The Royal Naval College, originally a hospital, the Old Royal Naval College including the fabulous Painted Hall, was transformed into a school to train sailors during World War II.

The National Maritime Museum and the Queen’s House art gallery are both within this wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site.
