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 become 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,
