Greenwich is a fantastic town to visit with picturesque parks, a Royal Observatory, riverside bars and lots of great shops to explore.
First you need a mode of transport to get here. Arrange to meet your date at one of the many central London MBNA Thames Clipper stops.
This is the most comfortable and impressive way to arrive in Greenwich.
Fare: £7.30pp if you use their App
When you arrive in Greenwich, you are immediately greeted by the impressive Cutty Sark Royal Museum. Whether you choose to visit will depend on your interests, budget and time.
An impressive British Clipper ship built on the River Clyde in 1869. She competed annually in a race with other clippers to bring the freshest tea to Britain from China.
Next, take a stroll through Greenwich Market and pick up a hand made present for your loved one. There is so much craft here, you could re-decorate your home several times over and still want to buy more!
Depending on the time you visit, you could follow your nose to the street food stalls.
Make sure you have cash, a lot of them don’t take card payments 🙁
Now walk to Greenwich Park (follow the street signs) and head up-hill towards the Royal Observatory and the Meridian Line.
You can pay to enter or just hang around it for amazing views over Greenwich, Thames River, Canary Warf and Central London. Stand on the Meridian Line for free by taking the gate and path in front of the Observatory.
Enjoy the views from the top of the hill then hold hands as you wander through the ancient woodlands to the Royal Maritime Museum and The Queen’s House.
We visited the Royal Maritime Museum several years ago and it is impressive but full of kids. However, you do get to see the uniform Admiral Nelson was wearing at his fatal Battle of Trafalgar.
However, for a romantic date, The Queen’s House is more suitable and boasts an impressive art collection. The staff are super friendly and able to help you imagine this wonderful building in it’s glory days with their captivating stories about its different purposes through history.
It’s also a good place to heat up if the weather is a little chilly
Head towards the river banks and you will pass through the Royal Naval College. Possibly to the tune of an orchestra or band practice in the air.
If there is only one picture you take with your date, it has to be here! There’s also plenty to see inside these magnificent buildings so check out our links to each stop in this guide, within the headers, for further info.
If you have survived your date, you may want to continue in each others company over a drink and some food.
Turn right at the rivers edge and walk along the path until you reach The Trafalgar Tavern.
Located in an ideal spot. Hidden from peak tourist areas with fabulous river views and boasts wonderful decor to create a real London ambiance.
We would love to hear if your date was impressed by this day out, please do share your feedback with us in the comments section. We read them all.
It’s over to you and Cupid now!
