Hugging the banks of the Thames, Greenwich is thrumming with the stories of a Britain gone-by. Home to the National Maritime Museum, Old Royal Naval College and the world’s last remaining tea clipper, it’s no wonder Greenwich claimed World Heritage Site status in 1997. Aside from brimming with reminders of Britain’s seafaring heritage, there’s also an exciting food and drink scene, and a gorgeous park with stretching views across the capital. Enjoy it all with a stay in one of our top hotels in London’s riverside borough.

Once a school, this 18th-century stately red-brick mansion on the fringe of Greenwich Park is a great base for exploring the area. The National Maritime Museums and gardens are just next door, and the 19th-century tea clipper, Cutty Sark, is minutes away. Plush sofas in plum velvet and dark leather await in The Officers’ Mess, a tastefully ornamented bar serving gourmet burgers with a worldly wine list. Excellent green initiatives include cultivating wildflower habitats, using biodegradable cleaning products and offering free charges for electric cars.
