Greenwich: Heroes and Villains

Greenwich walking Tour
Greenwich walking Tour


Stray off the beaten track to find stories of successes and disasters, pirates and royals. But it isn’t always so black and white. The heroes we think we know often have a shady past.

Greenwich is a popular destination, so we’ll be winding our way down quieter paths, in search of the unusual history and strange characters. Don’t worry though, we’ll also see the main sites and walk along one of the most stunning stretches of Thames path, ending at an atmospheric and historic pub!


The walk starts outside Greenwich Rail and DLR Station on Greenwich High Road (map here). The walk will last around 90 minutes and end outside the Cutty Sark pub on Ballast Quay, perfect for a post-walk drink and/or meal.
