The Knowhere Guide

The Worst Things in Greenwich, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Greenwich.

The Worst Things
  • TOURISTS AND DAY TRIPPERS STAY AWAY, Greenwich is better with out you dawdling about the pavement.
  • 2 book shops that had a 100% increase last year - now that is inflation for you!!!!
  • The traffic. At weekends, and particularly on Sundays, the queues of people trying to drive to or through Greenwich town centre are murder. To be honest, it's little better on weekdays during the rush-hour/school-run when loads of cars with one or two occupants block up the road, including the bus-lanes, stopping buses and cyclists in their tracks.
  • The Traffic and the sub-standard food joints.
  • The Auctioneer 'pub'. Absolutely shocking establishment.
  • Crystal Palace not much further the other direction
  • Can get overrun by tourists. The Dome...
  • dont drive to greenwich on sunday.really.youll thank me in the long run.
