Royal Greenwich residents don't need to travel anywhere for a whole host of fantastic ways to enjoy the summer.

There's plenty to entertain the whole family as Greenwich boasts world famous attractions, the longest riverfront of all London boroughs and a quarter of the borough is open space.

Tasty treats and local craft beers

If you're a foodie, you can find pretty much whatever it is that you fancy eating - from pie and mash to sushi, noodles to tapas or tacos. There's even specialty beer locally brewed right in the heart of the borough.

Local high streets, markets and cafes

For bargain hunters, Greenwich Market has it all, and is superbly located next to the town centre's main tourist attractions.

The recently revamped Eltham High Street offers all the usual high street brands as well as Turkish, Mediterranean, Nepalese and American restaurants.

And Woolwich's Powis Street has many well-known high street stores for shoppers to enjoy. There's also lots of places to eat, including cafe Artfix which offers free screenings of classic and foreign language films.

The great outdoors and the River Thames

Make the most of the great outdoors and follow The Green Chain Walk which winds through the borough as part of its 40-mile network of footpaths. It offers some of the finest landscapes and views in south London.

The Thames Path, a traffic-free walking and cycling route starts by the Thames Barrier and runs for 180 miles along the length of the Thames.

Historic buildings, museums and attractions

Councillor Denise Scott-McDonald, Cabinet Member for Culture, and Creative Industries and Community Wellbeing, said: "Over 18 million people visit Royal Greenwich each year from the UK and beyond to enjoy our unrivalled collection of historic royal buildings, museums, open spaces, attractions and markets.

Local businesses

Cllr Scott-McDonald added, "There's always something exciting to do so make sure you make the most of what's on offer. And don't forget your Greenwich One Card to grab some bargains at some of our great local businesses."
