About the area

The Royal Borough of Greenwich lies on the south bank of the Thames. Rich in maritime history, Greenwich also has an outstanding architectural heritage. Many of its buildings are designed by the well-known English architects, including the Royal Naval College, the National Maritime Museum, and the Royal Observatory built by Sir Christopher Wren for King Charles II. At the Royal Observatory, visitors can stand astride Longitude Zero with one foot in the eastern hemisphere and the other one in the western hemisphere. The borough enjoys many royal connections - within its boundaries, there are two former royal palaces and two royal dockyards. Additional visitor attractions include Greenwich Market, the Cutty Sark, the oldest surviving tea and wool clipper, the Millennium Dome, and the Thames Barrier. Greenwich can be reached in 15 minutes by train from Central London or via a leisurely 45-minute cruise from Westminster or Charing Cross Piers.

Greenwich is good for both long-term residence and a holiday visit. It has captivating theatres and museums, impressive architecture, numerous parks, and unique attractions.

In addition, Greenwich is known as the place where a person can find eccentric and distinctive presents. In order to buy some of them, people rush, in particular, to the famous Greenwich Market. Its advantage is that it’s open every day for the visitors looking to buy unique crafts.

It is worth saying that renting a flat in Greenwich is a good idea for several reasons: it is a respectable area with picturesque landscape and fresh air, close to the waterside, and with rather moderate rental prices compared to the City and the West End.

Thank You!
