Greenwich Period House
About the home
This is a rare chance for you to stay in a beautiful, residential area of Greenwich and enjoy the local speciality shops never usually found by tourists.
It is a perfect spot to unwind when visiting London or for exploring Greenwich itself with its market and museums (National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory, London Planetarium and lesser known Fan Museum). It is 15 minutes by train to Trafalgar Square and central London. We love the area so much we've moved around the corner.

Further details indoors:
This is a classic mid-terraced late Georgian/early Victorian property with two rooms on each floor and an extension family bathroom at the back where there is a large 50 foot/15 metre long garden. There are two bedrooms on the top floor, one with an en suite shower room.
At street level, there is a double aspect living room with sofa beds at either end which you can separate with a curtain at night time. Downstairs is the dining room with small study and kitchen leading on to the garden with seating at both ends. The family bathroom with bath is on a mezzanine level between the living room and kitchen. The property overlooks some allotments and is in a quiet and friendly residential area.
Further details outdoors:
Parking permits are available to purchase which allow you to park all over West Greenwich - if you can find a space. Frankly, it is easier to get around by public transport, but UK visitors may like to drive down and park near by.
Please no parties or loud behaviour as this is a residential area, we really like our neighbours and plan to return and live here ourselves one day when we are empty nesters.
One of the best cafes in Greenwich is one minute away!
Minimum three nights but ideal as a stepping stone when visiting London, providing a quiet haven to relax after a day on the tourist trail. The last train from Central London is around midnight.
- not suitable for party animals
- 50% booking fee payable in advance to secure stay
- £200 deposit refundable within two weeks of departure
The South East England / London region
Greenwich is in London zone 2 and a perfect holiday location in itself or a good stepping stone for all the tourist sights and acitivites in Central London, just 15 minutes away by train (thought allow an hour from door to door to reach many places). Greenwich
became well known in Tudor times when Henry VIII lived and hunted here. London winters can be cold and wet but there is so much to do that you will not notice.
The Central London/Zone 2 / Greenwich area
Greenwich became a Royal Borough in 2012 and the Queen re-opened the Cutty Sark in her Diamond Jubilee Year, the Archbishop of Canterbury also came for a visit, and the Olympic Equestrian events will take place in the park.
As well as this you will find:
- famous market: anything from crafts to antiques;
- museums galore: National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory, London Planetarium, Fan Museum, Cutty Sark;
- lots of restaurants and cafes and an interesting high street with few chains.
You can reach central London by boat, train or DLR (or bus if you have lots of time on your hands!)
