A visit to Greenwich will instantly confirm its status as one of only four Royal London boroughs. The beauty and magnificence of the regal buildings and the sheer volume of grand properties instantly demand a certain awe and respect so it is no wonder that the area is popular with city professionals and affluent families. Our Greenwich escorts love living here as the area retains much of its historical ambience yet has managed to weave in modern requirements seamlessly. The market square is alive with pavement cafes and individual boutiques and the new Greenwich Pier, created for the London 2012 Olympics is now a popular river cruise service linking Greenwich to central London. Our Greenwich escorts love to use this service into the city if there is time as it is a more relaxing and scenic route along the Thames.
Greenwich is intrinsically linked with naval and maritime establishments. The Royal Naval College was established here in 1873 and has provided courses for naval officers since then but before this it was the home of the Tudors. Greenwich palace, otherwise known as the Palace of Placentia, was where King Henry VIII was born and grew up. This was where he lived and worked until he built the Palace of Whitehall in the 1530s. The Palace was ignored and left for dereliction by subsequent monarchs who found the building too expensive to renovate until 1695 when it began its metamorphosis into the Royal hospital for seamen, later the Royal naval college until now as the University of Greenwich. The buildings can be visited and lots of tourists love to view the architecture – some of which was design by Sir Christopher wren, and hear about the history. Many of our escorts in Greenwich have enjoyed such trips so they are highly recommended to those who have an interest.
The Royal Observatory in Greenwich is perhaps the best known landmark in the area. Overlooking the Thames on a hill in Greenwich park, it is the location of the prime meridian. This is the line which is universally recognised to run from the north pole to the south pole and is used by everyone I the world (and space) for geographical positioning. A great place to visit, pictures can be taken, although these are best at night to show the green laser which shines into the night sky. A visit to the Greenwich observatory is not complete without a picnic in Greenwich park. Popular with people from all over London our escorts Greenwich often come here for the stunning views across the London skyline on a clear day.
When the sun sets, the meridian laser is not the only light to shine. There are plenty of clubs and bars to visit which offer a diverse entertainment schedule to suit every mood. If you have plenty of energy then of course dancing the night away would be ideal and such clubs as Studio 338 have that Ibiza style vibe for those loving the club scene. There are of course more laid back places and one which our Greenwich escorts enjoy is the North Pole Bar and piano restaurant with its live pianists and shisha lounge.
