Hotels near the Discover Greenwich
Delve into Greenwich's royal and maritime past at Discover Greenwich. With temporary exhibitions, a learning room, themed permanent displays and loads of hands-on activities, the centre is a great place to begin exploring the World Heritage Site.
The permanent exhibition explores the site's past, from its origins as a royal palace, to its use as a training college for the Royal Navy and as a hospital for retired seamen. Yet it also focuses on the craftsmen who built Greenwich's spectacular buildings, many designed by the architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Brewing returns to the area with the Meantime Brewing Company offering a range of historic beers, while kids can try on costumes and have fun with interactive displays peppered throughout the centre.
