Greenwich – Coach Tours
Greenwich, 5.5 miles south-east of Charing Cross, owes its fame to the Greenwich meridian and the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT.)
The old Greenwich village had a rich maritime history of its own, and is the site of the historical Palace of Placentia. Today, the site is administered by the Greenwich Foundation. The adjacent gardens, now the sprawling Greenwich Park, was once the hunting grounds of the Royal Palace of Placentia. The former Royal Observatory of Greenwich was in this park, and the Prime Meridian passes through the building. The park also has some other interesting buildings of note, including the Ranger’s House, the Wernher Collection of art, Vanbrugh’s house, and more.
The town has, over the last two century, served as a popular resort, with several stately houses, such as the Vanbrugh Castle, and many estates established.
The town centre offers a well preserved collection of building resonating Georgian and Victorian architecture. The Trinity Hospital almshouse, established in 1613, the oldest surviving building. The Greenwich Market dates back to the 14th century.
The riverfront is a prime tourist attraction today, and a dry dock by the river showcases the preserved Cutty Sark, a clipper ship. The Greenwich foot tunnel connects Greenwich to the Isle of Dogs, and lands at the island Garden on the northern banks of the Thames.
The other attractions in Greenwich include the Greenwich Heritage Centre, a museum and local history resource, the arthouse Greenwich Cinema, and the National maritime Museum.
There are several modern developments in Greenwich as well, the most striking monument being the O2, formerly known as the Millennium Dome. The Greenwich Millennium Village is a new urban regeneration development.
The annual Greenwich Regatta is a continuation of long standing tradition. The annual Great River Race along the Thames Tideway is another popular festival.
