“We spent a week in a wonderful sunny London and in this lovely apartment. Wide, bright, clean and equipped with everything. We enjoyed the proximity to the Thames and the beauty of the neighborhood. Absolutely recommended.”

Where is it?
Dating from 1545 and the reign of Henry VIII, the historic Royal Arsenal comprises listed Georgian & Victorian buildings. Many artifacts, cannons and artistic installations are positioned throughout the development, and you can learn about its history at the Greenwich Heritage Centre--along with the many informational panels doted around the Arsenal.
Our building which used to hold stores for the Royal Navy is in the gated Heritage Quarter or Golden Square which encompasses the Grand Store and several historic and listed buildings. Adjacent to the Thames, this area is considered the premier location in the development and is known as The Heritage Quarter or Golden Square.
Within metres of the apartment you will find Wellington Park, Dial Arch Pub (birthplace of the Arsenal Football Club)--The Gunners, Tesco's, Sainsbury's & Marks & Spencers Supermarkets, Cornerstone Cafe, Taproom/Hop Stuff Brewery, Con Gusto, and The Guard House.
It is so quick, easy and comfortable to take the Train, DLR-Tube, Thames Clipper River Boat or high speed Elizabeth Underground Line (from 2021 straight to Oxford Street & Heathrow) to Royal Greenwich/O2, Canary Wharf, Cannon St./The City, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, London Bridge, Embankment, Charing Cross (Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square/Piccadilly Circus, Big Ben-Houses of Parliament, The Strand, Covent Garden), Waterloo (London Eye-SouthBank), Westminster and Victoria Stations or Piers/Central London. Your bonus will be unique and breathtaking views of many of London's most famous and recognisible landmarks from the comfort of your own seat (unlike the crowded underground). And you'll be dropped on the doorstep of or within a short walk/bus ride of all the London sites and attractions you'll want to visit. Staying at the Royal Arsenal is a unique and one-of-a-kind experience and you will be minutes from all that you want to do while in London.
London City Airport is two stops away on the DLR with direct flights to Ireland, Paris, Scotland, Germany and beyond.
Locally Woolwich has a lively, authentic street market and shopping precinct. On the waterfront is a swimming and racquet sports centre, and the Thames River Path will take you past the Woolwich Free Ferry, famous Thames Barrier on to Royal Greenwich (Maritime Museum, Observatory, Park & Cutty Sark), the O2 (restaurants, concerts, cinema, exhibitions, theatre), Canary Wharf and beyond. The world's oldest Golf Club, the Royal Blackheath is a short drive or bus ride away and welcomes visitors. The club museum houses the world's oldest golfing medal and England's oldest golf club. Eltham Palace,the childhood home of King Henry VIII is across the street from the Royal Blackheath.
Woolwich and the Royal Borough of Greenwich were also Olympic venues.
