Greenwich is full of fascinating places to visit and is a bit of a hidden gem just down the Thames from central London. Home to the world-famous 02 Arena and Greenwich Theatre, the area has no shortage of entertainment in the evenings. And during the day, museums, parks and a planetarium provide plenty of fun for the family.
