That makes four royal boroughs but we are the only one in the south or east of London and its now ten bob to speak to me!

The great Palace of Placentia was built here by Henry VII, and Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were baptised here. The site is now occupied by the best Maritime Museum in the World and you can also see the Queen’s House designed by Inigo Jones.

jobba hemifrån med kundservice You will also find General Wolfe’s statue, Queen Caroline’s Bath and Queen Elizabeth’s Oak under which Henry VIII was supposed to have courted Anne Boleyn.

Next to the park is Greenwich University, designed by Christopher Wren with its magnificent Painted Hall and the Royal Naval College Chapel.

 

 

 

 

 

And all this stands on the river which provides an endlessly fascinating panorama of changing tides and boats. The town centre is equally interesting and Greenwich Market is not to be missed. You’ll also find the newly refurbished Cutty Sark here and some of the best pubs in England.

 

 

 

Don’t miss the Trafalgar Tavern which is mentioned in Dickens and used to do its famous whitebait suppers for the 19C MPs.

 

Crooms Hill leads up to Blackheath where the Marathon starts and you will discover The Ranger’s House at the top, and you’ll pass the only Fan Museum in the world and Stella Maris Church designed by Pugin. This whole area is a World Heritage Site.

 

 

A little to the east is Greenwich Peninsula at the tip of which stands the O2, formerly the Dome.

 

 

Time your visit well and you might catch a show to delight you. A walk around the shoreline of the Peninsula is an exhilarating experience and you can see the wonderful Ecology Park which recreated the original marshland habitat and where you can sit in the two bird hides and watch an extraordinary variety of birdlife. It’s a wonderful place to take children.

 

But the centre of Greenwich is not the only attraction. In Eltham to the South of the Borough you will find Eltham Palace, with its moat and magnificent hammer beam roof, adjoining the extraordinary Art Deco palace which was designed by Stephen and Virginia Courtauld and has the most amazing his’n'her bathrooms you would ever wish to see.

 

You will pass through Oxleas Wood with its bizarre folly known as Severndroog Castle, on your way to Eltham and that is one of the very few examples of ancient woodland left in the south east.

 

It’s easy to see why, with all those Royal connections, we were honoured with the title and I’ve only touched the surface of what Greenwich has to offer. But if any Grannynetters fancy a visit, let me know and I’ll arrange a personally guided tour!
