Greenwich is a tourist hotspot which, among it’s attractions boasts the beautiful Royal Greenwich Park, The Maritime Museum, Cutty Sark, The Naval College (Includes The Painted Halls), The Royal Observatory and Greenwich market.
The Apartment's location cannot get any better for access to amenities, historic attractions, and transport links to central London, Canary Wharf and the 02 Events arena.
Greenwich played a central role in the Olympics by hosting the equestrian events in Greenwich Park, making use of the beautiful historic backdrop, and stunning views across the river.
