Greenwich is within walking distance from my flat but the only times I ever usually visit are when I have guests and I’m trying to find anything touristy that doesn’t involve going anywhere near central London. When the sun was shining bright (for a split second) last weekend however, the boy and I decided to go for a little wander and I remembered how much I love Greenwich.
Greenwich isn’t just big boats and London views. It’s also home to cute little vintage shops and proper old school pubs. Even the Oxfam bookstore can’t be missed.
Greenwich Clocktower Market – One of my favourite markets to wander round. Full of weird and wonderful things. It can be a little overpriced but you can always haggle.
Tailor & Forge – An interiors concept store on the edge of Greenwich market, selling everything from rattan placemats to organic soap.
Joli Vintage Living – A treasure trove of vintage furniture and fashion.
The Junk Shop – Does what it says on the box. My boyfriend hates it but I love it. Don’t be put off by the musty smell. There’s also a little cafe in the back!
Anyone got any other Greenwich recommendations?
