London area of SE10 guide
What to do and where to stay in London's SE10 neighbourhood
Greenwich and its proud maritime history dominates the SE10 district. Best known perhaps for giving its name to the Greenwich Meridian and Greenwich Mean Time, the area is also famous for having one of the best and most aesthetically pleasing views of London - be sure to head to the top of Greenwich Park to see what the fuss is all about. The Royal Observatory can also be found at the top of the park, a venue that has played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation. The area is also home to the famous University of Greenwich and the Cutty Sark, a clipper ship that was preserved in dry dock before a fire left her badly damaged (restoration work has led to an expected reopening in 2011). The O2 Arena can also be found on the Greenwich Peninsula. Formerly known as the Millennium Dome, the site was an ill-fated project as part of the new millennium celebrations in 2000 but was transformed into an entertainment facility, hosting live concerts, sporting events and club nights.
