This “hot-off-the-press” revised version of the classic Greenwich Park walk takes you on an interesting journey through time from the Ancient Romans to the Tudors and on to the lavish Georgians and more….The Canary Wharf start has the addition of passing along historic docks and through a city farm before reaching the Island Gardens DLR and picking up any additional walkers for the trip through the Greenwich Foot Tunnel
and exploration of Greenwich Park
The fully revised instructions are now available under the download walk tab or here.
Don't forget to bring them along as they are now full of juicy details.....Also, please disregard the old route instructions and map still showing at the bottom of the information page (still updating).
Enjoy the walk!
