Boasting some of the best views in London, Greenwich is a wonderful place to liveKelly Rees, Director - Lettings
Parks & Recreation
Greenwich is defined by its parks and outdoor spaces. Chances are if you already live in London, or have visited as a tourist, you’ll have spent time here, either down by the river at the Cutty Sark or National Maritime Museum, or up in Greenwich Park visiting the Royal Observatory or just lapping up the breath-taking views over Canary Wharf and the city. There’s no shortage of space to fly a kite or walk the dog, and no excuse for getting bored if it’s raining with all the great museums and galleries to choose from.
Restaurants & Shopping
There’s a great mix of shopping and dining on offer, with the chains and high-street staples complemented by more boutique options and Greenwich Market, which sees visitors flock from miles around to browse the extensive range of wares every weekend. Greenwich Market is a real treasure trove for lovers of antique jewellery, vintage clothes, old books, 20th-century ceramics and more.
For foodies there’s contemporary European dining at Inside restaurant, while for ice cream on summer days try the popular Black Vanilla Gelato parlours.
Grab a cuppa with a view at the Pavilion Tea House near the Observatory, or tuck into some of London’s best fish and chips at The Pier restaurant.
Entertainment & Nightlife
Whilst embracing the history throughout Greenwich, the fantastic night life is not to be forgotten. Ranging from Up the Creek Comedy Club to live music at Olivers Jazz bar, and an array of pubs and bars, there is a night out for all.
London’s newest Royal Borough is awash with good pubs and bars, though the social scene is more about meeting up with friends for a drink or bite to eat on lazy weekend afternoons than all-night parties.
One popular local watering hole and meeting place is the iconic Greenwich Tavern. For a louder brand of nightlife you’re just a stone’s throw from one of the UK’s premier live entertainment venues, the O2 on Greenwich Peninsula.
The O2 Arena also plays host to concerts, and some top-level sporting action throughout the year; with basketball, boxing and the annual season-ending Barclays ATP Tour Final event, where the top eight players in world tennis slug it out on the indoor courts.
Schools & Education
Greenwich and Blackheath can boast some of the best primary schools in the capital, with great attainment and the full range of options to choose from, including prep schools and independent educationally selective options.
In addition to a great range of primaries, top secondary's in both the state and independent sectors include Blackheath High School for Girls, Colfes School and the Thomas Tallis School. Greenwich is well connected via Greenwich, Maze Hill or Blackheath stations.
