Royal Museums Greenwich - Explore Greenwich this Bank Holiday

Fall in love with Greenwich

Greenwich is blooming this month
With two bank holidays this month, May is the perfect time to get out of the house and explore Greenwich.

Sunny days are perfect for walking through the park from the Royal Observatory to Cutty Sark. Climb up to the main deck of the ship to meet our historic characters and discover what life was like at sea.

But don't worry if it rains, it's always beach weather at The Great British Seaside!
