Greenwich Park, London

4.7
#6 of 100 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.

    We visited the white house tea room on a sunny Sunday afternoon on 20th August. The outside tables were all left with dirty crockery etc from previous customers. Inside the male assistant was more int...  more »

    Ask yourself this. Why, with all the parks in London, was Greenwich Park chosen as the venue for the 2012 Olympic Horse Trials? Well, go there and you'll find the answer. Breathtaking views of the cit...  more »

  • A wonderful park full of history. Big enough to have a very long walk with your dog (or on your own). With shaded places and open spaces to suit everybody. Near Greenwich town with loads of pubs, shops and museums. You can also find the meridian and observatory in the middle of the park. A great place to visit!
  • Love taking visitors here who have not been to London before... Gives them another take on things to look over the Thames to Docklands and then on to the City and further still to Westminster. Nice park too, and the Observatory is great.
  • Greenwich Park doesn't need any recommendations or advertisement. It's the best park in London. It's unique atmosphere helps recharging batteries. There is Royal Observatory in the heart of the park and beautiful gardens. I'm loving it! �
  • Great walks and interesting people, trees & flowers. The beating heart of English History & World Geography. Good pubs in easy reach! 🍺
  • Big, open space. Absolutely gorgeous displays of daffodils and spring plants including magnolias and cherry trees. Pond has good varieties of ducks and geese. I enjoyed seeing the red and Fallow deer in the wilderness area of the park along with parakeets. There is a coffee cabin for drinks on the go and a restaurant plus toilets. Loads to see and do.

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.
