    I visited this beautiful building to see for myself one of the only treasures in Greenwich I've yet to go to. It's a short walk from the main drag and a pretty one at that; through the woodland with l...  more »

  • I've been there yesterday, but the castle was closed already. However the surrounding area is also beautiful, had a very pleasant walk around. Will defiantly go back to climb up the tower as well.
  • A secluded castle in South-East London. It's a different and a bit distant view of London's skyline. There is a cafe on the ground floor but there isn't anything else nearby to see or explore. Being on the outskirts it is not that touristic and provides more chance to relax.
  • A tiny castle tower hidden in the middle of a local forest! What could go wrong?? Then there's a cafe inside and lots of beautiful walks! I love this place.
  • A very beautiful and wonderful place among the woods. My kids love playing around the castle and in the woods.
  • It's such a simple little place. Small but cheap. Great views out over London and Kent. The café at the bottom has delicious fresh cakes and ice creams, teas and coffees. A lovely place to bring kids or adults. Lots of people at the café are out walking their dogs. And the Oxleas Woods themselves are a wonderful place for a walk at any time of the day.

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.
