Really nice town. I caught the 188 bus from Russell square too Greenwich. Takes an hour but a great way too see the sights of London. Sit on the top deck if you can. I know the tube is quicker but the bus is nicer....More

The park and the time line are worth a visit. Take time to relax in the park and enjoy the skyline views of London. Have fun and make a selfie at the timeline. Plenty to do even if you don't go into the museum.

Great views form the observatory and the maritime museum is interesting. the best way to do it is to take the boat. Tons of interesting stuff but the climb is not a walk in the park :).

We were staying at the Premiere Inn in November, it was not cold so walked the .7 of a mile into Greenwich, arriving at the amazing Cutty Sark and lapping up the waterside. I enjoyed taking photos of the lit-up vista of Docklands and looking...More

Lovely walk on a Sunday or any other day... Drop in to the Planetarium, straddle the time meridan (think GMT!) or visit the amazing Maritime museum. Never disappointing, always something going on & creat views of the City of London

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal

Greenwich is just a small village. While going through the commercial area, I didn't see any bicycle rental. However I saw students riding bicycles.
