Greenwich Park boasts the honour of being the oldest enclosed Royal Park. Formerly a hunting ground for Henry VIII, the park still maintains a 13-acre grassland enclosure, which provides an urban sanctuary for deer, foxes and over 70 species of bird. One of the largest green spaces in south east London, Greenwich Park offers a wide range of facilities and points of interest, including a child-friendly boating lake, six tennis courts and the National Maritime Museum just on the perimeter. The Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park is home to the Greenwich Meridian Line which represents the prime meridian, relative to which world time is calculated and the distance to every place on Earth is measured. The views from the top of the hill across to Canary Wharf and beyond are spectacular, and well worth the trek.

Where better to soak up the surroundings and enjoy the day than the beautiful park in Greenwich. To escape the crowds in summer, venture towards the back of the park where the flower and rose gardens await you
Beautiful place, amazing views, lovely atmosphere whether you are running, walking the dog or having a picnic.
we love Greenwich Park in all seasons, it's fab at the mo with changing autumn colours, blink and you miss the amazing couple of weeks of cherry blossom trees, lovely during summer eves and so special for a christmas morning stroll; it has views to die for whatever the weather.
Some of the best views in London, superbly maintained, and plenty of space to find your own little spot even on busy days in the summer sun.
The Greenwich park is an amazing place where you can benefit from an amazing view from the top of all London and some fun at the playground with your children. It is enchanted by beautiful buildings that recall the Royal style of this nation and is the perfect place to have a lovely family day out in winter or summer!
The best park in London - fact! Stunning views of old and new London, miles of open spaces and secret new discoverys. Plus it has a deer park - what more could you want!
