Green living in the
heart of the city

Greenwich is a thriving and highly desirable area of London. In part, because it offers residents a wonderful combination of urban and rural life – like a village right in the heart of one of the world’s great cities.

With over 50 parks and gardens to enjoy (including the spectacular Greenwich Park), you’ll find yourself wandering through green spaces forgetting you’re in a city. And yet, with excellent transport links, you’re just minutes away from central London and all it has to offer.

Thames Street residents also have the best of Greenwich on their doorstep. Walk the cobbled streets and discover an abundance of great restaurants, bars, artisan shops and markets. Greenwich is where the historic and the modern sit side-by-side making it a very special part of London.

Everything on your doorstep

Thames Street is just a 5-minute walk from Greenwich’s historic town centre, where cobbled streets and artisan shops await you. Visit the bustling Greenwich market, which is open 7 days a week. One of England’s finest, it’s a treasure trove of interesting items and tantalising food stalls.

The wider Greenwich area is packed with independent shops, art galleries, top restaurants and cosy pubs. And the O2 arena, which attracts the world’s best performers, is just a short bus journey away. Here planning is well underway to build Peninsula Place. An iconic shopping and culture destination at Greenwich Peninsula, set to attract visitors from far and wide to its 80 shops, restaurants, bars and cinema.

When it comes to historical landmarks you’re spoilt for choice, with the Royal Observatory, the Cutty Sark and the world’s largest maritime museum nearby.

Connected to city and country alike

Thames Street boasts great transport links, with central London on your doorstep. The Cutty Sark DLR is just a 5 minute walk from your apartment, with good links to the City, Bank and beyond.

From Cutty Sark, Canary Wharf is just 12 minutes away. With the City and Waterloo only 25 minutes away, you get to enjoy the relative peace and quiet of zone 2/3 living, while still being close to the action.

If you do want to get away from urban life, a short drive south takes you to the even greener pastures of Surrey and Kent, where you can enjoy quintessential English sleepy villages, country houses and beautiful landscapes.

And if you fancy a chic weekend break in Paris, it’s only 40 minutes from your front door to the Eurostar in St Pancras. Fantastique!
