This is the oldest park in London. It features wonderful views over the river, the city and Maritime Greenwich and is not to be missed. If you are with children, make sure that you have some peanuts in your pocket: the squirrels are utterly fearless and will take the from your hand, shell them and eat them in front of you.
The most famous attraction is the old Royal Observatory and its Meridian Line. What fewer people know is that, instead of paying for the privilege of entering and taking your photo astride the brass line, there is a pathway around the OUTSIDE of the observatory where the line is marked just the other side of a kissing gate and you can get the same photo free. Bear in mind though that the hill up to the observatory is very steep, although reasonably short. Take it easy going up!
In front of the observatory is the statue of General Wolfe, conquerer of Quebec. Round the back of the path around the observatory is the small, but attractive, Flamsteed Garden.
The park is full of beautiful paths through the trees and wonderful views. Don't miss it.
