The Cutty Sark is a spectacular day out. While you are there have lunch at Greenwich market. Walk through the royal park and visit the maritime museum. Finish up by wandering around the lovely flea market for mementos to take home.
Can be accessed via DLR from Island Gardens to Cutty Sark or go on foot via the Greenwich foot tunnel, which goes under the Thames river to be greeted on board to a historic (fast) sailing ship that once channelled the sea oceans trading tea.

“These photos don’t do justice to this lovely covered market in the Heart of Greenwich. It has lovely crafts and gifts and many food outlets. It is very close to the Park snd even closer to the Cutty Sark museum.”

“You wîll not regret a hike up to the top of Greenwich Park. Sitting next to the General Woolf statue lies the Royal Observatory and a museum which charts the history of time. The views over the Royal Naval College and the Queen’s House sre stunning. The bend in the River Thames can be seen and there are views of The Shard, The London Eye and St Paul’s Cathedral. You may like to stand with one foot on either side of the Greenwich Meridian, to be found at this spot.”

“I never tire of this park and visit it every few days when in London. It is a favourite with joggers, has a great children’s playground and provides access to many great sites and views including the Royal Naval Museum and the Freddie Offer Wing. There is a good cafe in the museum. There is a great Rose Garden, a deer park and the Rangers House sits to one side and is worth a visit. ”
