Hello, We are a group of passionate London tour guides. More Info »
This Funzing Experience:
Come and see some of the finest and most important buildings in England.

Greenwich was for centuries the ceremonial entrance to the capital from the river. It was the site of one the most important Tudor palaces, and later of the Royal Naval Hospital where a collection of the greatest names in English architecture worked, including Wren and Hawksmoor.

In the middle of the hospital is the Queen’s House, which introduced Italian renaissance architecture to England, and in the park is the Royal Observatory, where Charles II’s Astronomer Royal John Flamsteed mapped the night sky.

The presence of the palace, and then the sailors ensured a rich and various history for the town. Explore Greenwich’s magisterial and its seedy sides, and hear about its literary connections on this fascinating walking tour.
