“We had a wonderful holiday at Carolynne's lovely house. We had already been in Greenwich before, but living as a local just outside the park and the observatory was something we never experienced before. We took this opportunity also to explore in details all the elegant East End side of London, easily reachable in 10-15 minutes by trains running every ten minutes just a few steps from her house. We were blessed also with a lovely weather during our staying there and the view from the terrace and from the"cinemascope" window of the main bedroom was amazing. Thank you again Carolynne and Richard for this unforgettable exchange!”
Where is it?
We are right next to Greenwich's beautiful Royal Park, host to London's Olympic Equestrian Event and site of the National Maritime Museum, The Royal Observatory and The Queen's House.
Greenwich has many restaurants, shops, a famous market and is also home to the celebrated Cutty Sark tea clipper and the beautiful Painted Hall and Chapel of the Old Royal Naval College on the river side.
The 02, the UK's premiere music venue, is 5 minutes away by bus. There are 3 cinemas within minutes of the house and a public swimming pool, gym and fitness centre 5 minutes away. The park has open air tennis courts and a large children's playground.
Public transport is from Maze Hill station which is 2 mins walk from the house. From there you are only 15 minutes from Central London.
You can also travel to Greenwich by bus, tube, DLR and the delightful river boat service.
The main A2 road is minutes from the house which makes it very easy to leave London by car to explore the beautiful English countryside. Within an hour you can be on the Kent coast or at one of many national historical sites like Leeds or Hever Castle. Bluewater, the large modern shopping centre is 20 minutes by car.
Greenwich is a historic 'village', the birth place of Henry VIII and his children Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Mary I and is therefore steeped in history. As such it is often used as a film set, for example in Les Miserable, the Pirates of the Caribbean, The Queen, the Young Victoria and almost anything about Sherlock Holmes!
It really is an amazing location for a holiday!
