Greenwich is a very interesting location for a Treasure Hunt. It is probably the closest location to London which truly feels like a completely different place. In fact, Greenwich is quite unique with lots of interesting places and history. It is perfect for an away day that really does feel as though you have come away from your daily routine, and you can get there quickly and easily on the Docklands Light Railway.
Everyone knows Greenwich for its association with the Meridian timeline, and also its extensive maritime history. There is also The Cutty Sark, the famous ship, astrological attractions and the park with its superb views across the city including Canary Wharf and St Paul's. The park is a lovely location for a picnic or you can book lunch in one of the many excellent pubs in town.
As always our format is flexible and we can fit in with your plans. We recommend that the Greenwich treasure hunt is a two or three hour experience and we can start and finish at a meeting point such as The Cutty Sark or in a pub or similar location. Contact us with your corpoarte & private event details and we will make suggestions if required.
Greenwich is a Royal Borough. There are various locations around the UK with Royal patronage, which is a bit like being given an honour. Some of these locations are in London but others include Windsor and Maidenhead (because of the castle), Leamington Spa (after a visit by Queen Victoria in 1838) Sutton Coldfeld (bestowed by Henry VIII). Greenwich was honoured in 2012 to mark Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee.
The first weather forecast was issue from The Royal Observatory at Greenwich in 1848 by James Glaisher.
The Millennium Done is the world's largest dome and the largest single roofed structure in the world. It is actually a great building and lots of world class events take place there. Perhaps history will be kinder to it in time.
