This is litterally where the famous Greenwich Meridian starts!! Located on top of a hill, you will also get one of the finest views accross entire London! You have to go!
Walk across the 0 degree Meridian. Beautiful park and different view of the Capital with Canary Wharf in the foreground. Greenwich also has a market which is fun to visit. You can get there by DLR or a boat from Embankment which makes a great day trip.

“Sunday’s morning walks are the best, freshest ingredients, baked breads and more.”
“Visit Cutty Sark, the celebrated historic sailing ship and fastest of its time! Now an award-winning visitor attraction in Greenwich, London easily accessible with the Thames Clipper boat! ”
“Greenwich Park has some of the best views of London, particularly at the top of the hill by the Greenwich Observatory. You can see Canary Wharf and the city but you can also see the rest of Greenwich from here including the Old Royal Navy College and the restored Victorian tea clipper, the Cutty Sark - one of the world’s most famous ships.”
