Greenwich Park, London

4.7
#6 of 159 in Parks in London
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.

  • I am just so biased about Greenwich Park it has so much to offer!!You could park on the top and see the view on the hill next to the Observatory!Walk down and you will get to the market which can be c...  more »
  • Although I came to Greenwich for the meridian Line, but was attracted by this large and silent Greenwich Park, very relaxing slow and leisurely walk to the observatory, it is really appropriate to take a meal box, sitting on the side of the long chair on the road to feel good, the journey of Labor tired to express out!!

  • Nice big park. Well maintained and clean. You can walk to the Greenwich observatory through the park. Park gives amazing view of London. The only issue is lack of toilet or if it was there it was not prominent in eyesight. A sunny day is always better to walk in the park. Lot of trees and birds can be found. There are few enclosed areas and it is nice to visit.
  • A lovely big park in Greenwich. At the highest point in the park is the observatory and there are lovely views of London from the top. A great place to come watch the sunset and take photos! The park closes around 8pm, word of advice is to listen for the announcements that the park is closing or you might find the gate locked and you'll be waiting till the groundskeepers come to let any stranded people out.
  • Beautiful green space with culture and history and fantastic views of London from the southeast. Lovely historic hexagonal shaped "Pavilion cafe" in main drive at top of park opposite the planetarium. Plenty of choice sandwiches, cakes, local ice creams and hot traditional English breakfast is served in mornings. Open at 9am with chairs and tables outside for good weather and parking nearby using meters needing coins. Reasonable pricing and good quality food. Nice oasis of peace in the city.
  • The Greenwich Park is just behind the Queen's house and in front of The Royal Observatory. It is extremely beautiful the birds are singing the air is fresh and clean the trees of bright green and the grass is well cut and easy to picnic on. Closer to the Royal Observatory, you will find that the park is steeper, but closer to the Maritime Museum the grounds are accessible to the public throughout the day and flatter.
  • Really good park. A lot of beautiful flowers and trees. Rise garden. Deer enclosure. Great views of London... Very nice park for weekend walk no matter what weather.
