Greenwich Royal Park, Greenwich: 20 reviews and 40 photos
Greenwich Park covers 73 hectares (183 acres) and is the oldest enclosed Royal Park in London. It is situated on a hilltop with impressive views across the River Thames to the Docklands and the City of London, between Blackheath and the River Thames. On a clear day the best views of London can be seen from here.
Greenwich Park provides a setting for several historic buildings, including the Old Royal Observatory, the Royal Naval College, the National Maritime Museum and the Queen's House.
Entrance to the park from the town is through the impressive gates at King William IV Walk and then a fairly east ascent through the park is the most popular walk to the Observatory. There are several park benches to rest on if you feel the need but the paths are good and the tree planting imaginative. In my opinion at its best in the autumn when the colours are magnificent.

There is so much to see and do in the park - the excellent website below has details.
