Visitors arriving by train to this famously historic part of London, do so in fitting style. The station was opened in 1840, and the original still stands, making it one of the oldest surviving station buildings in the world. The line that serves Greenwich – the London and Greenwich Railway as it was known when it was built in 1836 – was the first steam railway in London and the first to be built specifically for passengers. It began at Tooley Street (now London Bridge) and ran via Deptford to Greenwich on a viaduct of 878 brick arches. It was the first elevated railway in the world. As you step out of Greenwich station, you’re just minutes away from an area packed with royal and maritime history. Passing the enticing shops, cafés, pubs and markets of the town centre, you can walk to the Cutty Sark in ten minutes. The National Maritime Museum, Old Royal Naval College and Royal Observatory at the top of the hill in Greenwich Park are also within easy reach.
