Things to do in Greenwich
There’s no doubting that Greenwich days out offer a whole host of activities designed to entertain children and adults alike. The Cutty Sark, for example, sits proudly near the River Thames as the fastest sailing ship of its time and gives kids the chance to run up and down the deck or play in the captain’s cabin. Sticking with the nautical theme, the National Maritime Museum is fascinatingly educational and very child-friendly as your little ones can climb the rigging, fix old boats, dress like a pirate and catch pretend lobsters.
Alternatively, if all things astrological are more your cup of tea, the space exhibition at the planetarium in the Royal Observatory is out of this world in more ways than one as you’ll see what it’s like to fly to the sun or land on Mars. The architectural masterpiece of the Old Royal Naval College was designed by Sir Christopher Wren, and has been featured in many movies. Stroll through the impressive grounds and find the perfect spot for a selfie with the family or your mates. This British landmark includes a Painted Hall, a neoclassical Chapel, and an Old Brewery where you can enjoy locally sourced quality British food after a long day of sightseeing. Whatever your tastes or interests, there’s no shortage of things to do in Greenwich!
