London area of SE18 guide

What to do and where to stay in London's SE18 neighbourhood

SE18 covers the area just east of Greenwich, meaning it could be described as being close to or on the outskirts of London itself. The area of Woolwich is the dominant district, falling just below the Thames in the north of the region. It is notable as a river crossing point, having the Woolwich Ferry (and the lesser-known Woolwich foot tunnel) to North Woolwich. Arsenal Football Club was founded in Woolwich in 1886 by workers at the Arsenal ''“ the club was initially known as Dial Square, then Royal Arsenal and then became Woolwich Arsenal in 1891. The Gunners moved to Highbury in North London in 1913 and dropped the Woolwich prefix the following year. Interestingly, Woolwich is the location of the UK's first branch of McDonald's, which opened in 1974. The 2012 Olympics in London will include Woolwich as a venue for shooting events and building work has begun in the barracks for the location.
