Serviced Apartments in Greenwich

Boasting heritage and history as well as a royal park, a quirky covered market and numerous attractions, the area of Greenwich is one of London’s best hidden gems. While this Royal Borough is a train or bus journey south-east of central London and is perhaps not as famous as more central parts of the city, it is most definitely worth a visit. It also makes a great home away from home for guests staying in this area of London as it is well-connected by train, bus and DLR, and it has a pleasant and untypically urban feel, with cobbled streets, green spaces and many unique listed buildings – in fact is it a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

As the name gives away, Greenwich has some grand connections. It is one of only three Royal Boroughs in London and it was originally the address for the royal Palace of Placentia, the birthplace of many Tudors including the infamous King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. With a strong maritime history, it also lends its name to the Greenwich Meridian and the Greenwich Mean Time, which are the reference for the calculation of both latitude and time zones around the globe. You can actually visit the Greenwich Meridian Line here and during the night a green laser beam marks its path on the sky.

As a visitor staying in the area you will be on the doorstep of several attractions, including the Royal Observatory, the last surviving tea clipper – the Cutty Sark - and the National Maritime Museum to name a few. You will also be able to enjoy lovely river walks and views, attractive streets of period properties, the extensive gardens of Greenwich Park as well as Greenwich Market and the entertainment complex of The O2 Arena. In fact, Greenwich has so much on offer, you might not feel the need to ever go north of the River!
