Woolwich living means cultured living. Riverside Greenwich is steeped in history, with the world’s largest
maritime museum, the monumental Cutty Sark and the Royal Observatory. Further east, towering Canary
Wharf blends shopping with events throughout the year, from summer concerts to Christmas ice-skating.
More locally, independent new bars and restaurants are re-energising the palate, and the General Gordon and Beresford squares are becoming destinations in their own right. Open-air dining, organic cafés and thriving farmers markets add colour and variety, while new gastro-pubs, pizzerias and the vast Tesco supermarket promise a flourishing future for the district.
Galleries, public performances and fragrant stalls dishing up world food brings the streets and squares to life with colour and an exciting verve. Or if you want a quiet and peaceful hour or two, a gloriously relaxing walk or cycle ride awaits on the Thames paths alongside the river, where you can soak up London’s eclectic architectural wonders, old and new.
Woolwich is redefining its future and embracing its past.
With significant investment over the last ten years, the district has been shaped by new cafés and restaurants, art galleries, parks, open studios, shopping and hugely popular farmers markets, further enhanced by allure of the River Thames and the cultural activities and events that line its banks.
