The former hunting grounds for King Henry VIII, Greenwich Park dates back to the 15th century. This 74 hectare (183 acre) park is the oldest enclosed royal park in the UK--much of the original brick wall still exists today. Be on the lookout for the small herd of fallow and red deer, a remnant from the park's origins as a hunting ground. Enjoy spectacular views of the River Thames and St. Paul's Cathedral while picnicking with South London's locals. Because of the limited parking facilities, access the park by Tube, bus, train, DLR, or boat. Arrive by bike to enjoy the numerous cycling routes available.

One of the iconic place in the world. Where the time zone is set. This the 0.00 +/-GMT. They have a museum and a Planetarium which you can book on the day or online before hand. There is a souvenir / Gift shop with some unique amazing items. A coffee shop is available with toilets or separate toilets are available around the park. With £1 you can use the telescope to see the London buildings. A lovely place to spend with the family and kids.
