Utterly Gorgeous Greenwich

A walk around Greenwich is almost mandatory if you want to walk the best of London!

The views from Greenwich Park were voted the second best view on a London walk by 24 London walking experts (coming in close behind Richmond Park!).

So if you haven’t made it there yet, what are you waiting for?


Watch this beautiful video for some of the best sights in Greenwich Park:

Getting there

The 183 acre Greenwich Park can be reached by:

  • Tube & bus: North Greenwich (Jubilee Line) – then catch the 188 bus to Greenwich Park gate.
  • Train: Greenwich, Maze Hill and Blackheath
  • DLR: Cutty Sark or Greenwich

 

An ideal walk around Greenwich Park would take in all of these…

1. The famous views of the city

2. Admiring the deer in ‘the wilderness’ enclosure, at the southern end of the park:

3. The beautiful flower garden and rose garden:

4. And of course no trip to Greenwich would be complete without stepping over the famous Meridian Line:
