Seasons Greetings from Greenwich


Greenwich provides an alternative shopping scene to the crowded and pounded pavements in Central London. With City Cruises you can be transported directly from Central London to Greenwich Pier hassle free (and take advantage of a great deal – see the end of this post for details). And running all through December until Christmas day, you can get 50% off River Red Rover tickets! City Cruises’ hop-on, hop-off freedom pass gives you access to all four piers – so your day out can be as long or short as you please.

Taking in the sights is the perfect way to gear yourself up for a super shop, and Christmas markets are a compulsory part of welcoming in the festive season. Open from the 2nd December all day every day, Greenwich Christmas Market offers up to 150 stalls and boutiques, presenting beautifully crafted gifts and exquisite food.

If that wasn’t enough, Santa himself will be making an appearance! Children can visit his grotto in the market on the following days leading up to Christmas: 7th – 8th, 14th – 15th and 21st to 22nd December from 12:30pm to 5:30pm.

The saying goes ‘shop till you drop’. Well the Trafalgar Tavern is the only place you should be going to take the weight off your feet. As charming on the inside as it is on the out, the Tavern is a tribute to Old London. Longstanding since 1837, you’ll be sharing a drink in the same pub that was once a popular destination among the likes of Charles Dickens and William Gladstone. The tavern has remained true to its heritage without appearing dated or old-fashioned. The menu is bursting with variety and a separate bar snack menu is also available; expect fresh fish dinners due to their perfect riverside location.
