About Greenwich Park

As a World Heritage Site marking the site of the Greenwich Meridian (the base point for World Time and the location of Longitude 0) Greenwich is most famous for being associated with time and with space. As you walk across the spectacular Greenwich Park you get a potent sense of both. More about Greenwich Park
