The Basics

The most scenic way to arrive in Greenwich is by boat, and sightseeing cruises along the Thames run all the way from Westminster, passing landmarks like Big Ben, the Tower of London, and Shakespeare’s Globe along the way. The best way to explore is on foot and a walking tour of Greenwich typically includes landmarks such as theCutty Sark (the world’s sole-surviving tea clipper), the Old Royal Naval College (famous for its magnificent Painted Hall), the National Maritime Museum, and the Queen’s House. Be sure to visit the Royal Observatory, where you can stand at the meeting point of two hemispheres on the Prime Meridian Line, and Greenwich Market, which is renowned for its art, handicrafts, and delicious street food.

I thought the trip to Greenwich was excellent. The boat was clean and tidy and the commentary was really good and interesting. But wrap up as it can be cold if you sit outside.

Westminster to Greenwich Sightseeing Thames Cruise in London
We have just decided a day before that it would be great to have a trip to Greenwich not by train and bus, but by boat. So I quickly bought the ticket online in a minute, and then everything was settled. It was totally clear from the description where and when to go. The boat crew was very professional and also funny, they shared a lot of interesting information during the trip.

Leeds Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, Dover & Greenwich River Boat Ride
Was a good tour - Tish was a great host and our driver Duma was the best we have had and made it possible for us to see the White Cliffs (traffic was horrible) - all in all not our fav tour but none the less a good one.

Leeds Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, Dover & Greenwich River Boat Ride
Golden tours coach was modern and excellent, with a computer display at every seat. The tour guide PABLO was very knowledgeable and helpful. And the places visited - Leeds castle, Canterbury, Dover and Thames river cruise - were beautiful and worth visiting. The entire countryside during road travel was quite scenic as well.

Royal Museums Greenwich Day Pass
Awesome place. Only gave ourselves three hours here. It's nowhere near enough. We'll be back and will be spending the full day here to see everything. Even that might not be enough. Brilliant staff. Great views. Interesting displays if you have family members into history or technology or how the world and solar system used to and does work. Make sure you book the planetarium events in advance, they do sell out before the day.
