Walk across the 0 degree Meridian. Beautiful park and different view of the Capital with Canary Wharf in the foreground. Greenwich also has a market which is fun to visit. You can get there by DLR or a boat from Embankment which makes a great day trip.

Park
“I never tire of this park and visit it every few days when in London. It is a favourite with joggers, has a great children’s playground and provides access to many great sites and views including the Royal Naval Museum and the Freddie Offer Wing. There is a good cafe in the museum. There is a great Rose Garden, a deer park and the Rangers House sits to one side and is worth a visit. ”
