A walking tour

Few places in London have such a rich and varied history as this small riverside town. Birthplace of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, Greenwich's Royal connections can be traced in its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Greenwich is equally famous for its Maritime connections. Explorers, adventurers, slave ships and prison hulks have all sailed past its elegant buildings. The Maritime community at Greenwich laid the foundation of Britain's overseas expansion and former Naval superiority.
