Greenwich is famous for being the historic maritime quarter of London. There are several remnants of this history for residents and visitors to take in. The Royal Observatory stands out among these. It was the location where the Meridian Line was developed, revolutionising how sailors navigate. On top of this are the National Maritime Museum, the Cutty Sark, and the Royal Hospital, formerly a home for retired seamen.
The culture and history of the area is a major selling point but it is not the only one. Additionally the area has good transport links, particularly to Canary Wharf. Although the roads can suffer from congestion there are plenty of rail services to choose from. You can even opt for a river taxi service.
Possibly the biggest attraction is that there is work ongoing to create thousands of new homes in the area. This could reach 20,000, with 15,000 in Greenwich Peninsula alone once all of the new neighbourhoods are completed. With house prices rising by around 35% in the last two years alone there is good investment potential. This improves when you consider how high demand is for rental properties.
Another big plus for Greenwich is it has good schools. This is one of the key things that make it so popular with families. There is a selection of primary and comprehensive schools, some with outstanding ratings from Ofsted.
With such good schooling and the other attractions on offer it is no surprise that the Borough has such good staying power, both in terms of owner occupiers and renters. With so many new homes being built people can move up the property ladder too.
