Eye on London - London's Markets

London from the inside Monday 7th - Sunday 13th November 2016

 

Take advantage of November’s darker days and early nights, when the pace of life seems to slow down before cranking up again for Christmas and parties. Have long weekend walks and explore local markets before skulking back into your house at dusk to whip up a culinary storm with your purchases and watch the box.

EYE ON… GREENWICH

There are 32 capsules on The Coca-Cola London Eye, representing the 32 London boroughs, so each week we explore a different London borough.

 

Some of the best walking in London has to be along the Thames. Start at the Thames Barrier and see how far you can get (do it in stages). The first logical stage is the Thames Barrier to Greenwich. Get to the Barrier by travelling to Charlton station and it’s about ¾ mile from there. The walk to Greenwich is just over 4 miles, going past The O2 and Canary Wharf. Leave early enough to spend some time looking around Maritime Greenwich when you get there - including The Old Royal Naval Hospital and the Cutty Sark - and for refuelling and relaxing of course.

 

Best places for refuelling and relaxing in Greenwich (and they all begin with G!)...
  • Fish and chips: Golden Chippy
  • Pub: The Gipsy Moth
  • Cinema: Greenwich Picturehouse
  • Restaurant: Green Pea
  • Markets: See list above for the three main Greenwich markets
