If you are planning a trip to London, I would highly recommend a day trip to Greenwich. There is easy access from London on an MBNA Thames Clippers boat, or via the Docklands Light Railway.

If you live not far, you can take a walk to Greenwich like me. You can see gorgeous park, fantastic museum and university camp, Cutty Sark and breathtaking view from the hill. It,s worth to spend here a day.
If you have an extra day in London, this makes for a full trip. The boat there and back was fun and informative (if a little slow). The maritime museum was excellent, particularly (as an American) given England's long history at sea. The observatory was...More

Walk up from Blackheath and through Greenwich Park. It is a beautiful park graced with trees with plenty of places to play games, picnic and relax. Coming from Blackheath means you walk towards the Thames which means you get a lovely view at the Observatory...More
Love Greenwich. Can get there by bus, train or boat up the Thames. Wonderfully scenic water journey. Delightful gardens, museums, tea shops, antique shops, great walking and not endlessly noisy or smoggy.
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a
laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.

Hi, well I actually was born & bred in London, but if you want to stay in Greenwich, there are a couple of Hotels on the Greenwich Peninsula. I believe 1 is a Holiday Inn.
Hope this helps & I hope you enjoy your stay.
