There’s a wonderful vibrancy to Greenwich. The area has a passion for creativity and a reputation for hosting amazing events.

Take time off in Greenwich to enjoy the culture at our museums, browse designermaker stalls and independent shops and stand with one foot in each hemisphere at the Greenwich Meridian, Longitude 0°. Or you could try something a bit different, like a flight over the Thames on London’s only cable car or a walk across the roof of The O2.

Greenwich provides great opportunities for your event programming. Why not include a guided walk of this historic area, book a beer or wine tasting session, enjoy a round of golf or take a sightseeing trip on the river. Encourage your guests to enjoy life outside the confines of the meeting room and add a little sparkle to the agenda.

social programmes team building incentives partner programmes extended stays Whether it’s part of the event programme or for socialising with guests after a hard day’s conference, there’s a great choice of places to sit and unwind in Greenwich. From cosy armchairs in a traditional London pub or a scenic spot with a gourmet take-away, to elegant seats in a classy brasserie, your guests will be able to relax and reflect on the day’s events.

ROYAL MUSEUMS GREENWICH The feedback from our guests throughout the night was fantastic and the service level of your staff was paramount in making it run so smoothly – and we will look forward to working with you all again in the near future. Venues Event Management

THE O2 In putting together Sundance London, which is held entirely at The O2, we have found the team to be professional and accommodating. The design of The O2 shows a commitment to the audience by creating the best event spaces possible for film and music, but the staff’s willingness to support a project like our shows a deeper commitment to arts and culture.
