Maritime Greenwich has been added to the list of World Heritage Sites due to the quality of the area and the historical and architectural interest of its buildings. Greenwich is a lovely area whether you stay here or come for a visit.
We would advise you use the Thames Clipper boat taxi service as this brings you into the heart of Greenwich and as you step off the boat, you’re greeted with the impressively beautiful Cutty Sark. The Cutty Sark is one of the worlds most famous ships which was build in Scotland in 1869 which has been restored and is visited by thousands of tourists each year.
HFH would also recommend visiting the National Maritime Museum where you can stand on the world-famous Greenwich Meridian Line, which represents the Prime Meridian of the World – Longitude 0º!
Greenwich market is a must visit and has been active since the 14th Century. The current market was designed in the 1700’s.
An evening of jazz in Oliver's Jazz Bar is not to be missed, as well as either an evening cuddled in front of the open Fires in the Cutty Sark Pub/Restaurant or spent outside on the river bank taking in the amazing views of the River Thames in the outside space of the Cutty Sark Pub (depending on what time of year you visit us).
We’d also recommend a refreshing walk along the river – such beautiful views!
