Enjoy a cycle or walk through this large park in London. There's 180 acres of wide lawns, tree lined avenues, orchards and pretty gardens. There's also a beautiful 200m long herbaceous border and a deer park with Red and Fallow Deer. You can climb to the park's high points for great views of the River Thames, Canary Wharf, the Isle of Dogs and the City of London. The park also houses The Royal Observatory, the home of Greenwich Mean Time, the Prime Meridian and London's only Planetarium. The observatory played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation.
This circular route around the park is designed for walkers but you can cycle along The Avenue and Blackheath Avenue through the park. You can extend your cycle by heading to the River Thames and picking up National Cycle Route 1. Quietway 1 also starts from Greenwich. The Jubilee Greenway passes along the Thames to the north of the park. The 60km waymarked trail takes you on a tour of the capital's finest parks and most famous landmarks.
At the Cutty Sark you can pick up the Waterlink Way which takes you south along riverside paths to Beckenham. From here you can also follow the Thames Path east and visit the famous Millennium Dome.
