Greenwich Market

Ever dreamed of visiting London’s only market that is located within a designated World Heritage Site? Then live the dream at Greenwich Market, where you’ll find delicious dishes from all over the world, from Brazilian Churros, to Sicilian Cannoli.

Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark is the famous British high-speed clipper ship, which sailed the world’s tea and wool routes from India and Australia in the 1800s, before steam ships gradually took over.

The ship is now a museum and has become a top tourist destination for anyone visiting London. When stepping on board visitors can discover what sea life would have been like in the nineteenth century, including the chance to take the ship’s wheel and steer it through storms and high seas.
