What you'll do

We will meet at St Mary’s Gates across from the Greenwich Tavern pub. I will give a brief introduction of the tour, share a few unique stories about the location where we will meet, enter the park, walk along the parameter, talk about the herb garden and the White House, see the remnants of the old Greenwich hospital conduits, hunt for graffiti from the 1700s, go up the hill, view the city from a unique perspective, enter the Queen’s rose garden, walk passed beautiful flowers and foliage, talk about Queen Caroline’s colourful life in relation to the bathhouse remains discovered in the park, come across the deer sanctuary, learn about the Roman history, learn about the royal history and enjoy breathtaking views of the city. I will share tantalising tales of a park rich in hallowed history. We will end the experience with a delicious tasting from the magnificent Fudge Patch in Greenwich Park.

I am a lover of history, unique stories and the tranquil outdoors. As an enthusiastic educator, my passion and historical knowledge of Greenwich have enabled me to design a unique walking tour around the park that is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city living. I am originally from the US; although, I’ve lived all over the world and landed in Greenwich nearly 6 years ago. As an ardent history buff, visitors and friends have often told me I’d be a good tour guide because I’ve invested in knowing the unique history of the area. I spend most of my free time in the park; taking hikes, photographing the foliage or showing people around the unique nooks and crannies of the park.
