Caught the tube down to visit the Royal Observatory. Well worth looking around, and then popped into the National Maritime Museum to look at the harrowing tale of Franklins ill fated northwest passage expedition. Topped the day off with a river trip back up the...More

We visited here at the end of our river cruise. One of the first things you see is the preserved Cutty Sark which is mightily impressive. The Winter Wonderland looked very expensive for what is was so we gave it a miss. Instead we walked...More

Situated in South East part of London, Greenwich offers lavish green area with spectacular panoramic views to capture in photographs. Don't forget to visit the National Maritime Museum where Greenwich Mean Time is measured.

A huge disappointment. Limited plastic huts with minimal stock. I believe the play may have been included in the £15 pp entrance fee (We didn't stay long enough to see) but the ice skating and Santas grotto were extras. Just across from the Cutty Sark...More

My family had a fantastic time at the wintertime festival! Mulled wine on arrival and a warm welcome from polite and helpful staff. There were food stalls with a range of yummy foods. The chocolate Van was my favourite! Try the amazing chocolate fudge cake!...More

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of

Greenwich is just a small village. While going through the commercial area, I didn't see any bicycle rental. However I saw students riding bicycles.
