If you fancy a short walk and a chance to take in one of London’s finest views, then Blackheath Station to Greenwich Park could be just the ticket.

The viewpoint from Observatory Hill is one of London’s finest and this short, one-mile walk from Blackheath Station to Greenwich Park provides the ideal approach, whatever the season.

From Blackheath Station, head towards Blackheath – a gently ascending expanse of green. Once you’ve crossed the heath you’ll find the gates to Greenwich Park, go through them and head towards the iconic statue of General James Wolfe looking out towards the River Thames. Stop where you are, buy an ice cream if the fancy takes you, and then just a few steps further marvel at the stunning view over London.
