Climb to the top of the hill in Greenwich Park and outside the Royal Observatory you will find a fantastic viewpoint in front of the statue of General Wolfe.
Take in the incredible vista spanning the beautiful architecture of the buildings of Royal Museums Greenwich, across to the symmetry of the Old Royal Naval College – now home to the University of Greenwich and Trinity College of Music.
Beyond this you’ll see the famous curve of the 215 mile long River Thames and, nestling on its opposite side, the towers of Canary Wharf and the city of London. You can spot some of London’s most famous buildings old and new including St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, the O2 arena, the Walkie-Talkie, The Shard, the Cheese Grater and the Gherkin.
It’s stunning during the daytime and equally mesmerising at dusk. When the shimmering lights of the city start to illuminate the vista it takes on a whole new level of beauty.
