Greenwich Park is one of London's 8 Royal Parks and has welcomed generations of visitors – from ancient Romans and Anglo-Saxons to Tudor monarchs and Victorian sailors. All of them have prized its dramatic scenery and famous views over the capital.

Famed for it's sweeping views over London’s skyline, spectacular views can also be enjoyed away from the crowds, at the summit of peaceful One Tree Hill. You’ll see why it’s long been a magnet for artists and writers.

Sitting in the middle of the park is the world-famous Royal Observatory, where the Greenwich Prime Meridian begins. This is the line that divides the world into Eastern and Western hemispheres – in the park, you can hop from one side of the world to the other, then buy a ticket to discover more inside the Observatory itself.
