Greenwich is steeped in history, rich with culture and style. Famous for its connections to the golden age of seafaring, when naval ships would protect the approaches to the city and commercial craft would pass by on their way to London docks. Greenwich was a rural village for much of its history; a place apart from the city, across the river and beyond the clamour of the capital’s commercial life.
Many saw it as a sanctuary of calm and elegance, a place preserved for families seeking space and refinement. Today, although well-connected to the city, it retains its sense of being a place apart. Bordered by the river to the north and the vast open spaces of Greenwich Park and Blackheath, it enjoys an enviable status in the hearts of Londoners.
