The best hotels in Greenwich
Formerly a police station, this striking building, which earned a RIBA design award in 1946, was recently saved from dereliction by local celebrity Lady Delves Broughton. It now rejoices in its reputation as Greenwich’s first boutique hotel, and its situation in the coveted Ashburnham Conservation area. The deluxe bedrooms in the glass-roofed extension have splendid views over London, and the Oasis O1 bar is glitzy. Event-goers and performers from The O2 Arena in nearby North Greenwich get preferential rates.
Greenwich is the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and the Prime Meridian of the world, but that doesn't mean the line of longitude is the only notable thing about the area. Greenwich features some great restaurants, which celebrate the history of the area and museums that make seemingly mundane topics fascinating.
