Greenwich Park, London

4.7
#6 of 162 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. By using our London holiday website , you can arrange your visit to Greenwich Park and other attractions in London.

  • Absolutely lovely park. Its for all ages people, come with toddler and have fun, enjoy time with friends or enjoy a family day out, even bring food and drinks & a tent to enjoy a day out. A great place for natural enthusiasts, the wast verity of trees shrubs and flora and fauna wont disappoint you. Don't forgot the rose garden and uphill flower garden. Spend a late evening and enjoy the sunset.
  • Beautiful place for spending a day out. And the bonus is that you get to see Shepherds magnetic clock, Royal observatory, planetarium, maritime museum and many other things. You need to walk onto the mountain to see this, so have enough energy.
  • Stunning views from this huge park! Can get very busy at weekends/half term on sunny days. Well worth the trip out of town to visit 🌳
  • Beautiful park. Well kept. Nice places to eat and drink and sit down. Observatory and Maritime Museum are excellent for all ages.
  • Greenwich park is local to me and I'm lucky to have it. If it seems crowded in the summer just venture further in. The park is pretty big and people tend to gather around the v main entrance. There's lots of interesting bits to it and so worth having a good explore.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
