Things to do with toddlers in Greenwich

There are plenty of fun activities for toddlers across our sites in Greenwich. Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory are all jam packed with easy ways to entertain the under-5s.

Captain a ship

Let your little ones behind the wheel of the Cutty Sark and snap a photo of them captaining the fastest tea clipper of its time. Be sure to explore the top deck, including the captain's quarters to see how the ships inhabitants worked, lived, and slept.
