Greenwich might just be one of the best areas in London to visit! Of course, we’re a little bit biased but there’s a heap of the best things to do in Greenwich that are dotted all across the neighbourhood, which you really can’t miss.

Being one of the three Royal Boroughs in London (alongside Chelsea and Kensington and Kingston-Upon-Thames), it’s made quite a name for itself for its centuries of history, some of the most iconic London palaces and London markets.

Plus, it’s only a stone’s throw from the very centre of London so what’s not to love!

Now, for me, the thing that makes Greenwich so great (after all the historical spots) is that it’s totally walkable and really easy to stroll around in a day or two. This is great if you fancy seeing a different side of London, especially as it’s so different from other areas like Camden or Covent Garden.

Ever since 2006, I have managed to avoid the winter months entirely, either by heading to the opposite hemisphere for their summer and shoulder season or staying somewhere close enough to the equator that I could remain blissfully unaware of winter’s very existence.

It has never occurred to me before that I could spend winter in Europe and not freeze. Until now. I was able to have a glorious month in Chania Crete this winter, and I loved it so much that I’m entertaining fantasies of it being an annual getaway.

Here are some fantastic things to do in Chania, Crete in winter. Whether that be for a day trip or a full few weeks, I have plenty of tips for you!
