Welcome to Greenwich
Greenwich is set alongside the River Thames in SE London, the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site is a famous visitor that includes the Old Royal Naval College, National Maritime Museum and Cutty Sark,. Greenwich will be awarded prime Royal Borough status in 2012 and will also be a host borough for the London 2012 Olympic. Situated  just 20 minutes from central London it is easily reached via the Docklands Light Railway alighting at Cutty Sark.


Places to visit, things to do

Here at the History of Maritime Greenwich website we are keen to promote not just the Greenwich Maritime Museum but London as a whole.

But the Maritime Museum must be seen. You will find the remains of ancient ships and boats in the maritime museums, as well as fascinating artefacts, lively exhibitions, fun activities and even chances to board and experience the life on water.

This makes it very interesting for the visitor, who gets to experience the sense of being in water in a century that they have never lived in.

Listed buildings

Homes in and around London are often historically listed buildings, meaning not much can be done in terms of renovation. If you have permission to restore a listed building it is important that you hire a home renovation company who are highly skilled and qualified to carry out this job.

You can often get an idea if a contractor is what you are looking for by looking at their portfolio of work. These home builders will need to provide a number of services, from an architect for restoration ideas, to structural engineers.

Buildings that are being restore will need a historic building consultant, in order to make sure that all the work follows the correct regulations for restoration.

We are delighted to recommend the cleaning company Time For You for all your cleaning needs, and if, like us, you are south of the river and looking for a cleaner, we recommend the franchise Time For You South West London who provide the same police checked, interviewed cleaner each week and offer a fantastic service to London

Greenwich has some fantastic properties, attractions, landmarks, monuments and museums. Sadly, like the rest of London, it also has the potential to witness a large amount of crime.

That is why it is important to use a respected and established security firm for places in Greenwich, just like in London.

Useful companies provide a wide range of security services in London, including manned guarding, CCTV, alarm response services, key holding services, and mobile patrols.

Keep Greenwich safe and secure.
