Greenwich is a borough of London that’s well known for its beauty. The perfect combination of city and space, it’s attractions tell the story of the ages and it’s an excellent place for a spa day or break.
In the initial instance, Greenwich was famous for its maritime history, and as such remains home to the Cutty Sark, a restored 19th-century ship, the National Maritime Museum, and the Old Royal Naval College. Visitors are also fans of going to the Royal Greenwich Observatory, but alongside all that heritage, there’s the contemporary O2 arena, on a peninsula to the north.
Another popular destination, especially for sunny days or for crisp winter walks, is Greenwich Park - London’s oldest Royal Park. Offering spectacular views over the river Thames and the City of London, it remains home to a small herd of deer, and there are several cafes to visit. For those seeking a little retail therapy, Greenwich Market is ideal for crafts, antiques and a global array of street food. Or you could hop on an Uber Boat for a view of the area’s landmarks from the water.
Spa goers in Greenwich love the proximity to all of London’s attractions alongside the more restful atmosphere of the location. The Spa at InterContinental London - The O2 is romantic and modern, for example, perfect for couples or for groups of friends celebrating special occasions or preparing for a night out.
