This is one of those places that you will feel left out if you don't go once. Great views from on top of the hill-the observatory is interesting but the outside area is more kid friendly. Very steep walk up from the park.

Greenwich Park is a former hunting park in Greenwich and open year-round for public. It is a very beautiful park with childrens' playgrounds, boating lake, flower gardens, cricket pitching cycle routes. It is always a pleasure to be there strolling around!

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the

Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park
and a number of related buildings (and one world
famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World

Hi, well I actually was born & bred in London, but if you want to stay in Greenwich, there are a couple of Hotels on the Greenwich Peninsula. I believe 1 is a Holiday Inn. Hope this helps & I hope you enjoy your stay.
