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. Though it’s located just five miles from central London, a visit to leafy, family-friendly Greenwich almost feels like a retreat from some of the city’s more hectic districts. To set the tone for your relaxed day out, why not arrive by taking a boat trip down the Thames

Greenwich may be calmer and more community-minded than some parts of London, but don’t be fooled into thinking there’s nothing to do here. Once you’ve taken in the stunning Thames views, you can check out fascinating museums, a vibrant market and world-famous tea clipper the Cutty Sark. London’s biggest arena for pop concerts and sporting events, The O2, is just a couple of miles away in north Greenwich, too. And rhere are also plenty of pubs, bars and restaurants for a pitstop, as you’ll find out below.
