The South East England region
London is a global city, very cosmopolitan, with strengths in literature, finance, entertainment, fashion, and music. It has a wealth of historic monuments, buildings and museums (Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Houses of Parliament) some of which are the best in the world. The choice on offer is vast with modern attractions such as the London Eye, Tate Modern, and the O2 concert venue, providing some of the best art and modern music concerts, too.
You won't be lost for things to do and places to go and if you want to see the quieter side of London, there are several Royal Parks to walk through (St James, Richmond, Greenwich). You will not be disappointed when you visit - we can give you lots of tips and information if you request any.
Central London/Zone 2
GREENWICH AREA: From the flat, take bus 129, 177, 180 or 286 from East Greenwich Library. Alternatively, take the mainline rail from Westcombe Park to Greenwich (2 stops).
Maritime Greenwich, World Heritage Site, is an unique ensemble of buildings and landscape of exceptional artistic value, the work of a number of outstanding architects and designers. At the same time, it is of considerable scientific significance by virtue of the contributions to astronomy and to navigation. Enjoy a walk along the River Thames or in Greenwich Park before eating in one of Greenwich's restaurants. Greenwich shopping is excellent, with plenty of quirky, independent shops and street markets.
Greenwich is easy to reach by Docklands Light Railway, tube, rail, bus or riverboat.
NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM:
Following the National Maritime Museum's £20 million facelift, the 19th century Neptune courtyard has been covered over by a glass roof. The revamped museum is bright, airy and the whistling wind and fresh air make you feel like you're on deck. The various exhibitions in the galleys/galleries offer an interactive experience with heaving open hatchway doors, turning the ship's wheel and using Viking oars. Check out ancient uniforms, follow Admiral Nelson's sea-faring career, watch archive material of passenger ocean travel, discover what life was like in Britain's maritime heyday, and get involved in the All Hands exhibition. Wind down in the lush Global Garden - the glorious result of exotic seeds brought back by sailors. Admission is free.
ROYAL NAVAL COLLEGE:
Designed by Christopher Wren, this building was founded by William III as a hospital for the Royal Navy. The Painted Hall, decorated in the 18th century by James Thornhill, is particularly worth a visit. The grounds also include the Chapel of St. Peter and St. Paul in Queen Mary Court, its Rococo style restored in 1980. The Royal Naval College is found alongside the River Thames, within a few minutes walk of the picturesque Queen's house. One-hour guided tours are available for GBP5, GBP4 concessions.
Designed by Hercules Linton, the Cutty Sark was renowned throughout the seafaring world as one of the fastest ships of the period. After a colourful career, she was moved to a dry dock in Greenwich in December 1954. Officially opened in 1957 by Her Majesty the Queen, she's been visited by over 13 million people since. The number of 'the old lady's' admirers are bound to increase, as she remains a living testimony to a glorious bygone era of sail and Empire.
It won its Royal Charter in 1700 and specialises in antique, collectables arts and crafts (Thur-Sun).
ROYAL OBSERVATORY GREENWICH
Founded in 1675 by Charles II to find out the 'so much desired longitude of places for perfecting the art of navigation' It is home to the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and Meridian Line. The Museum is a top Tourist attraction all year round.
GREENWICH ROYAL PARK:
Covering 74 hectares (183 acres). Greenwich is the oldest enclosed Royal Park and home to a small herd of fallow and red deer. Situated on top of a hill, visitors enjoy sweeping views across the River Thames to St Paul's Cathedral and beyond. The park is part of the Greenwich World Heritage Site, host to the Prime Meridian Line and the old Royal Observatory, as well as having the National Maritime Museum as a neighbour. Royal Park was a site of 2012 Olympics Equestrian event.
OTHER NEARBY ATTRACTIONS:
* Firepower (the Royal Artillery) museum
* Greenwich Heritage centre
* Greenwich Youth theatre and Woolwich Pier.
* Thames Pathway. Walk or cycle along river Thames pathway extending southwards to the Millenium Dome and Woolwich and northwards to the Docklands and Central london.

SOUTH EAST LONDON
The south-east corner of London is one of its richest areas to explore, in part because until 1750 the only fixed crossing spanning the River Thames was at London Bridge. If you enter the area here and walk through the dense streets of Southwark, running east from Bankside to Rotherhithe, you'll discover an atmospheric jumble of venerable churches, towering warehouses, gentrified wharves and cobbled lanes leading to defiantly surviving pubs. Life is not stuck in the past, though - there is also an immense energy here, fuelled by floods of daily commuters and a spirit of renewal epitomised by Renzo Piano's Shard, the 72-storey “vertical city” now arising at London Bridge to become the tallest building in Western Europe.
There's more, for this is a place where cultural powerhouses and landmark attractions are lined up like dazzling jewels. There are the hugely popularly galleries of Tate Modern, the revitalised Southbank Centre, the consistently rewarding National Theatre, the confidently spinning London Eye – how much time can you spare?

"schöne bequeme Unterkunft für die Familie"
Eine große Wohnküche im unteren Stockwerk, Schlafräume und Bad oben - geräumig, bequem und gut ausgestattet für eine vierköpfige Familie, die sich selbst versorgt. Die Wohnung ist mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln gut angeschlossen, besonders schön ist die Nähe zu Greenwich.
Eine sehr nette Vermieterin, die bis spät nachts auf unsere Ankunft gewartet hat: herzlichen Dank nochmal! Die Informationen auf der Website sind umfassend und haben sich in der Praxis bewährt.
Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und würden immer wieder kommen!

"Lovely house, and very practical"
The house is very nice, and we got to have a lot of nice dinners in the big living room.
Everything was clean and ready for us, we didn't miss anything.
It is situated very close to central Greenwich which was really nice as well.
The buses come very often just round the corner, and the train station is 5 min walk so that was perfect.
Thank you very much !

The appartment was beautiful. It was nice and clean and spacious. We would recommend it to anyone. Owners were polite and very courteous and helped us tremendously. If we ever returned to London in the future would consider staying there again.
