Overlooking the River Thames and home to one of London’s most iconic views, Greenwich Park is an amazing mix of 17th century landscape, stunning gardens and a rich history that dates back to Roman times.
The park’s 183 acres has something for everyone. Stand on the Prime Meridian, the reference point for the rest of the world, and visit The Royal Observatory.
Follow in the footsteps of England’s kings and queens with a walk through Greenwich’s ancient trees. Visit the tranquil flower, herb and orchard gardens then stop for tea at the Pavilion Café.

This playground was really well thought out, during our visit, there were other playground goers but also 2 primary schools, and still loads of room for all to run wild around. There was added security within the playground as there were two sets of teachers on each of the three gates.
There was a wild range of equipment to suit all needs from toddler to big children. There was many different wooden and metal climbing frames.
They had a massive sandpit with water feature, Xavi didn’t want to get his hands sandy today.
Xavi enjoyed jumping like a frog from board to board.
Xavi enjoyed trying to walk along the rope, which he did manage, he never gave up.
There are places to eat either on a bench or picnic table (some are under trees so look out for bird poo). On observation there was hardly any rubbish and the playground was quite clean.
The toilets are on site and was used just to wash hands before we ate, they were clean.
I enjoyed myself here and did not want to go home until I sprained my ankle after a couple of hours.
