Greenwich is one of those charming villages in London that feel like a world away. With quaint streets, charming shops, stunning architecture, centuries of history, and stunning views this world heritage site is a lovely place to spend day. Here are some of my favourite things Greenwich has on offer,

Royal Observatory - Designed by Christopher Wren and the scientist Robert Hooke, it was observations made here that made it the home of time and longitude.

Prime Meridian- Located within the observatory is the Prime Meridian, where longitude is 0º. A man made designation used by all to measure your location on the earth vertically.

Queen’s House- The Queen's House designed by Inigo Jones was the first Palladian building in England.

National Maritime Museum- A wonderful museum with an extensive collection featuring maritime and navigational history.

Old Royal Navy College - The building designed by Christopher Wren is an architectural masterpiece in and of itself, but inside you simply cannot miss the epically baroque Painted Hall.

Greenwich Market- A lovely market with delicious food and local artisans selling their wares. The perfect place to pick up some lunch for a picnic in the park.

The Fan Museum - A quirky museum dedicated to the history and making of fans. They also have a charming Orangerie serving tea and cakes.

Ranger’s House - An English Heritage site housing a beautiful art collection including a Botticelli.
