Greenwich is the oldest enclosed Royal Park, 74 hectares (183 acres) in area, and is home to a small herd of deer. On top of a hill, visitors enjoy sweeping views across the river Thames and Central London.
The park is part of Greenwich World Heritage Site, host to the Prime Meridian Line and the old Royal Observatory, and near the National Maritime Museum. In summer, a bandstand plays host to concerts and the children's playground offers entertainment.
There are three cafés: The Tea Pavilion, with beautiful large gardens; St Mary’s Gate Café (with a snack bar nearby in summer), near the National Maritime Museum; and The Honest Sausage – near the Royal Observatory. Public toilets with disabled access. Cricket and tennis can be played.
