Greenwich Park, London
(4.7/5 based on 1,900 reviews on the web)
The former hunting grounds for King Henry VIII, Greenwich Park dates back to the 15th century. This 74 hectare (183 acre) park is the oldest enclosed royal park in the UK--much of the original brick wall still exists today. Be on the lookout for the small herd of fallow and red deer, a remnant from the park's origins as a hunting ground. Enjoy spectacular views of the River Thames and St. Paul's Cathedral while picnicking with South London's locals. Because of the limited parking facilities, access the park by Tube, bus, train, DLR, or boat. Arrive by bike to enjoy the numerous cycling routes available.

  • A great space for anyone to visit. In the winter you get lovely views from the tops of the hills, in the summer you can enjoy the full bloom of trees and flowers around. It has well laid out paths to run and walk and hold the Greenwich Observatory in the centre and the Maritime Museum at the bottom. It has good open spaces for picnic and games and it is always busy with people enjoying this fantastic park. The children's playground area is also very good and varied with lots of equipment for different age ranges and accessible toilets. Right next to a splashing pool handy on those hot summer days.
  • Favourite Park in London! Key Takeaway: MUST GO & worth the time to visit! Truly breath-taking views up on the hill (near the Greenwich Maritime Museum). Comfortable grass in the vastness of more grass and trees! Picnics are recommended. Napping on the grass. Lots of museums to see. Old neighborhoods to check out. Definitely a MUST GO worthwhile destination! Location: 10 minute walk from Greenwich Tube station! 5 minute walk from Cutty Shark Tube station! Visited October 2016.
  • Greenwich park is pretty much world famous, it's home to the observatory, is next to the national maritime museum and has great views. I have visited a few times but my experience this time was mainly of the children's play park which is well equipped and extensive! The sandpit could have done with a clean but this is a minor gripe; we had a lot of fun!
  • Great and large park out of the way from the hustle and bustle of central London. One of Royal parks with deer. Walking paths throughout with beautiful plants in spring and summer. Amazing views over central London and Canary Wharf. Can be a bit inaccessible for elder or less able people as most of the attractions are up the hill. However if driving from the southern entrance parking is available. Also try and spot the flock of parakeets whilst visiting.
  • Stunning park with beautiful views of London. Try and find Elizabeth's Oak for the best view without all the tourists. Lots of museums and restaurants near by. A great day out for the family
