111 Places in Greenwich That You Shouldn't Miss

Available

Description

Greenwich is the one London district whose name resonates around the world. As 'the place where time began', everyone has heard of it, so naturally everyone wants to come here when they visit the capital.

With a memorable and picturesque Thames-side location, its maritime history means that there's more to see here per square foot than any other outer London neighborhood, and this new guide tells you how to do it.

111 Places not only tracks down the most interesting nuggets among Greenwich's mainstream sights, from the Cutty Sark to the Meridian Line, it also lifts the lid on the area's lesser-known attractions - from haunted Jacobean houses and mudlarking in Deptford Creek to classic pie and mash shops and famous riverside pubs. It explores beyond the confines of Greenwich town centre, turning up treasures like Henry VIII's favorite residence, Eltham Palace - now an Art Deco gem - and nearby engineering feats like the Thames Barrier.

You could come to London and spend half your time in Greenwich, and we wouldn't blame you if you did. This book tells you how to make the most of London's maritime borough.
