The park has free entrance. Beside the observatory there is a look out area. It offers a great city view of London. It worth to visit, as it is free. If you walk down the hill check the National Maritime Museum, also free admission. kids...More
My favourite place to take friends visiting London is Greenwich. Walk up to the meridian line for a fantastic view of the old Naval College and docklands for free. If you have read the book Longitude, pay£16 to enter the observatory and see Harrison’s clocks....More
Top tip is to approach the Park from Blackheath Common, that way you get to walk down, not hike up!
Glorious park, a real treasure, so much space, wonderful trees and absolutely stunning views regardless of the weather.
Little walk up to the Observatory with amazing views from the top. The park is extensive with numerous paths to walk and some beautiful gardens (Rose Garden and flower gardens) . Possibly the nicest park I have seen in London
It’s a large area incorporating such historic the treasures as the Royal Observatory and the Prime Meridian at its peak as well as the Ranger’s House in its southern quarter. It affords breathtaking views across the Queen’s House which is the centrepiece of the National...More
Has to be the best park in London, what a view over the city! Simply stunning. I didn't get to go in the royal observatory but will certainly do so on my next visit. Great place to wander around peacefully away from the city.
Just a joy to wander through this park. I have never seen so many rose bushes of all different styles and colours. It was the end of the summer, so must remember to revisit at the end of August next year to get the full...More
A big garden with good small cafes. Views from royal observatory are quite good. A small walk ffom there to rose garden and a small water pond with lots of ducks. Kid loved it, me wife and our friends loved it.
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a
laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.

After living in Greenwich and visiting the park most days I can't imagine any forced restrictions on the playground. If you are with a group of mixed ages and there are no conflicts with any other kids then it'll be fine... More
After living in Greenwich and visiting the park most days I can't imagine any forced restrictions on the playground. If you are with a group of mixed ages and there are no conflicts with any other kids then it'll be fine. Older, large kids hoarding the playground equipment may cause problems but common sense prevails over rules and statistics.
