Historic town from which we take 'Greenwich Mean Time'
Greenwich Tours with Great British Trips
Greenwich is the home of Greenwich Mean Time, the meridian line and home to important landmarks such as the National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory. Greenwich is a village which became incorporated into the larger city of London as Britain's capital grew, but has managed to keep its own identify, and despite being so close to central London, still has a village feel. It has many quirky independent shops, and great street markets. Greenwich Park located on a hill has fantastic views across the river to Canary Wharf, St Paul's Cathedral and beyond. The Park contains a small herd of Fallow and Red deer and you can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat in the Pavilion Tea house. Greenwich can be accessed easily from Central London on the Docklands Light Railway or you can take the river boat along the Thames.
