"As Rachel has mentioned, the museums are a must (and free) plus you are on the right side of the city to explore however London is really easy to get around so getting right over to Greenwich on the other side is quick and cheap if you use the London Underground (The Tube) and grab yourself a Tourist Oyster Card (from any Tube Station)."  See More

"Greenwich - I love the maritime feel of Greenwich."  See More

"the problem with the east end is lots of it got bombed in the 2nd WW, and traditionally it wasn't the place for architecture, but Greenwich has the naval colleges (lovely buildings) and the Meantime Brewing Company in the grounds, the National Maritime Museum, the Cutty Sark - The Sailing Ship and lots of old pubs and new restaurants."  See More

"I really recommend getting out to see Greenwich if you have time."  See More

"Tip: Although Big Ben are walking distance from the Southbank and The London Eye is on the Southbank you should buy a River boat ticket from London Eye Pier and visit London Bridge and Tower Bridge and you can take the river boat all the way to Greenwich and see the Royal Observatory and Maritime Greenwich."  See More

"If you want to take a little farther tube ride I had friends living in New Cross and we'd go to Greenwich for views from the Old Royal Naval College , dinner and drinks, again local small shops and boutiques and good diverse restaurants."  See More
