Greenwich and Tower Hill

Greenwich has always played a significant role in international sea-faring. This is clear to see when considering that Greenwich was selected as the standard point (zero degrees latitude) from which all meridians should be measured. All international clock times are based on variations of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Greenwich is one of the finest parts of London south of the river Thames, with a good selection of restaurants pubs and attractions. Perhaps the most famous attraction is the Millennium Dome, the largest single structure in the UK built as a celebration of mankind's achievements. The Tower Hill area also contains a number of fascinating landmarks such as the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
