Greenwich Transportation: 39 reviews and 74 photos
You can catch the overground train from Charing Cross, Waterloo East or London Bridge with 2 going every hour.
Alternatively the jubilee underground line goes to Greenwich North but then you have to catch a bus into the centre.
Otherwise the more expensive way is to travel by boat from Tower Pier, Westminster Pier, Thames Pier or Charing Cross Pier sometimes you can get a discount through a website like www2for1entry.co.uk with a rail ticket or sometimes on your oyster card. Mostly a boat trip is included if yu take a hop on hop off bus tour around London
The DLR is a driverless light rail train and a delightful way to travel to Greenwich cause its a mini tour in itself, why not sit up front and pretend to drive or simply take a video.
If you have time my suggestion is you take the DLR to the Isle of Dogs and walk through the Greenwich Foot tunnel that goes under the thames and links the 2 sides of the river exit at the Cutty Sark. It is 1,217 feet in length and 50ft deep the tunnel is lined with 200,000 white tiles. From the Isle of Dogs you can get some wonderful pictures of Greenwich. There is a spiral staircase and a lift although the lift does not run at all hours.
If you are in a hurry or do not relish the walk I suggest again the DLR to Cutty Sark stop.
Remember if you are using your oyster card you will need to touch the yellow oyster reader to exit even though there are no barriers.
