Reasons to visit the good old Greenwich

You can know all the corners here, but we will still find interesting places and fresh ideas for you. For example, in Greenwich there is a bar of champagne and cheese, and another place where you can do archery. If you are an avid instagramer and want excellent photos, keep reading: it will be useful for you.

Take a photo of the staircase in Queen's House. In July 2015, this building was closed for repairs, but last October it was again opened to the public. In Queen's House there is a huge collection of works of art and, of course, the famous "tulip staircase". This is the first spiral staircase in Britain without a central pillar, and for this stair alone it is worth traveling to Greenwich. Blue paint, which covers an iron construction, was made of crushed glass - this technique was carefully imitated during the repair.

Drink beer in Old Brewery. Old Brewery is a beautiful historic pub on the territory of the Naval College. There is a beautiful outdoor terrace to sit in the open air, and delicious food for any season of the year. Beer, of course, is also served. All meals are in the best traditions of Britain.

Do archery in Archery Fit. Instead of spending the weekend watching "Hunger Games" or "The Lord of the Rings", why not to be your favorite heroes for a day? Yes, that's right: after a two-hour training session with an experienced mentor, you will hit an apple with your eyes closed. And archery perfectly removes stress, especially if you imagine that the target is something you really do not like. For example, endless traffic jams or too expensive beer.

Indulge yourself with champagne and cheese. This is a magical combination! Join Champagne + Fromage in an excellent French restaurant and dedicate an evening to cheese and champagne. The cuisine here is seasoned: a lot of cream camembert and other delicious cheeses, pastries, fruits, honey and sweets - everything that strengthens the delicate taste of cheeses.

Enjoy meat snacks at Heap's Sausages. In this cafe they offer a huge selection of sausages, for every taste. In total, there are two such institutions in Greenwich. One even has a store in which there is everything that concerns sausages. We recommend you to try breakfast, which is served all day. For vegetarians and fans of sweets, also there is a wide variety of dishes.

Touch the famous movie. It would seem that Les Miserables had to be shot in France. But no, most of the filming took place in the United Kingdom. Greenwich is a very popular place for filming. There "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Four weddings and a Funeral" were created.

Ride on the Emirates Air Line. Race over the Thames by cable car, from the station Royal Victoria to North Greenwich. The price is £3.40, if you have an Oyster Card. This is the way of spending time for those who like to look at the city from a height. At small people, their cars and houses and on funny little plants.

Emirates Cable Car Terminal, Edmund Halley Way, SE10 0FR

Have a snack at Salt Shed. Salt Shed is the kingdom of pretzels, as well as salted meat. They say the most delicious and unique in the menu - ribs and bacon with mustard-honey sauce. This institution can be found in the Greenwich Market, and it works on Thursdays and Fridays.

Greenwich Market, SE10 9HZ

Learn more about time travel and aliens. Why not go to the Royal Observatory late at night, when there will be no children there? In silence and tranquility you will learn more about our stunning universe. You can come here at night, and you will be told about supernatural discoveries, travels in time and, of course, about aliens. Find more information here.
