We’d love to go to London next time we go to the UK. Having a recently married daughter who moved there from the States gives us incentive to visit different spots. I’m a definite history buff, so I’m sure the Tudor Tour will be on my list! We also love the local pubs. No McDonald’s or Subway in England for us!

Last time I came here me and the bf went 1 1/2 rows before we had spent our cash - that's another tip, bring cash as the nearest cash point always has a massive queue.
Daytrip idea: Start in Greenwich park, visit the observatory, have a picnic in the park, head down to the market for a browse, a drink in one of the local pubs, a bit of history at the Cuuty Sark then a lovely meal in one of the local restaurants! Perfect!!!

Haha! There’s so many amazing places to eat and drink why would you need to go there? lol.
Congratulations on your daughters marriage as well. Hopefully you’ll be able to pop over to the UK sometime soon and take advantage of all the history.
Let me know if your over any time soon and I can recommend some places for you!

Congratulations on your daughter’s marriage and I agree that there are a lot of awesome places to eat, great that you are staying away from McD for your trip here (UK McD really is not as tasty as around the world anyway…) I look forward to reading a review of the Tudor Tour! :-)
I didn't do any shopping in Greenwich Market, but I and my friend did eat there. There was a lot of choice, and the food we had was very good indeed, and not like some dodgy market food stalls. The only qualm I might have is that it's a tad pricey.
I love this market. Where we live we are slap bang in the middle of here and Borough market.
On a Sunday, there is no where better to start your day then at Greenwich market.
They have all sorts of foods and some amazing coffee as well.
Well worth a trip
I love this market, I'd even go so far as to say it's my favourite in London.
The shops and cafes that encircle it are kinda mediocre and over-priced but the market itself has some true gems. It's neither extortionately priced vintage tat (Portobello) or badly made jewellery by some mental (Shoreditch). Instead it's full of nice old ladies with genuine finds.
I have a much loved set of vintage Babycham cocktail glasses from there which I'd happily kill a puppy for if it meant preserving them.
I went here a while ago and loved it. It seems to have hidden treasures.
A great place to find vintage pieces, a great place for crafts and crafters. Nice selection of foods and clothing areas.
I find this place great to go to for inspiration, it's different to portabello and the two have their differences but you have to visit it. You will enjoy your shopping experience. The people are lovely and you're not cramped in there.
Try and get there just before christmas to bag some goodies.
I love Greenwich Market,it has a nice buzz. There is also a good range of unusual shops to find something different to buy. A lovey place to walk around with your significant other. Take in the beautiful Greenwich Park and the riverside too!
Greenwich market has a real mixture of crafted objects to retro designs, second-hand stalls and a nice selection of food stalls, as well as some interesting shops on the outer rim. If you find yourself in Greenwich then don’t miss this market but I can imagine that it’s very busy over the weekend and it’s a tight space to walk around.
An excellent place to find local treasures. There are so many different stalls there will definately be something that takes your fancy - from clothing to jewllery to antiques and trinkets. The food for sale around there is tasty and fresh, there are different styles so I suggest have a wonder around to see what takes your fancy before you decide to buy. It is a popular place so be ready for a few crowds when visiting.
Excellent market for loads of goods - antiques, nautical goods, puzzles, world food, paintings and much more besides.
All arranged in an extremely accessible manner, with plenty of stalls and shops that are easy on the eye and wallet.
A stone’s throw away from the Docklands Light Railway, and a gentle walk to the river, park and Greenwich Observatory.
Greenwich Market in South East London is renowned for its hand-crafted items,paintings and ornaments and a lot more besides. This sprawling market currently has around 160 stall holders dealing in glass,jewellery,ceramics, mens and ladies ware,pottery ,second hand books and rare records. Fancy a Henna tattoe ? Well there is a tattooeist at the market as well.
You have a number of options for getting there. If you are in Central London you could take a boat trip and get out at Greenwich Pier. The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) stops at Cutty Sark, surface rail trains stop at Grenwich and Bus Nos 177,180,199,286 and 386 include Greenwich on their route.
Greenwich Market was established and granted a prestiguous Royal Charter back in 1849. The market has a great location by the River Thames and is near to many historic sites. Nearby you will find Cutty Sark,the Old Royal Observatory-home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT),the National Maritime Museum and the Royal Naval College. You can combine a visit to this babel of commerce with visits to intriguing attractions in this attractive borough.
This market has a great central location, which is definitely worth a visit. It has an infectious busy atmosphere with its great variety of products including second hand goodies and hand crafted gems. Not forgetting the aromatic flavours wafting through the market from the different food stalls.
Although during the weekends it does get very busy, it’s a perfect place to pick up that possible bargain or unusual present. If there isn’t enough choice in the actual market there is always the little shops and art galleries that surround the market.
The chintzier of the remaining Greenwich markets (the most characterful and atmospheric one has just been closed to make way for yet another ill-advised block of flats) I tend to avoid this at weekends when it gets too packed but like its week day manifestations when it reinvents itself as a flea market. The wednesday food market is OK for a snack but a non-starter otherwise. Worth visiting now as its next on the to-do list of Greenwich destruction (sorry, I mean regeneration)
I’ve bought some beautiful and unusual items from Greenwich market, including bags and clothing, at prices that are not horrifically steep for unique, hand made products. You can buy a range of craft and antique goods here too and there are also several stalls selling baby items. The food stalls serve top quality produce and I’ve bought some great pastries, cheese, curry sauce and chutneys from Greenwich Market in the past. If you go out of the covered market though you will sometimes find another little market area if you go left along the main street (towards the cinema) at the weekends. There you will find some more clothing stalls, including vintage clothing, as well as more general antiques. Often this little offshoot of the market has some more interesting pieces and is usually a lot cheaper.
