Why Move to Greenwich?
Greenwich sits in a U bend or peninsula of the great River Thames; it forms part of the various London Boroughs.
The town is most notably known for its maritime history and for giving its name to the Greenwich Meridian (0° longitude) and Greenwich Mean Time.

Today, the area is emerging as a modern cultural and entertainment hub offering the best of London living.
Greenwich is on the edge of Zone 2 and has two stations: Greenwich and Cutty Sark. The town offers excellent travel connections which easily take you anywhere in the capital and further afield to work, play or explore
Being quite large Greenwich is unofficially divided into East and West Greenwich. The town centre lies in the middle. It is small, with an ‘old town’ feel and has a few small shops and is where some of the prettiest buildings are found.
The main tourist attractions of the town centre are Cutty Sark, the Observatory, and the National Maritime Museum, all of which are located in Greenwich Park.
Although the nightlife is relatively quiet when compared to London’s centre, for such a well-connected location, residents by no means miss out.
You can take a walk along the River to popular areas like Greenwich Market and The Royal Observatory. For a spot of retail therapy, visit the newly opened ICON outlet at the O2 in North Greenwich with a range of designer outlet stores, a short bus ride away from The River Gardens.
A safe and serene place, with beautiful architecture, spacious parks and The Royal Observatory attracting hundreds of visitors every year, it is so easy to fall in love with Greenwich.
