New Homes in Greenwich
Well-known as a tourist destination, Greenwich is perhaps less well-known as a destination for investors. Yet all that is changing. With billions being spent along its 8.5 miles of riverfront and beyond, the property market is booming in this South East London borough.
Greenwich was created in 1965 by the amalgamation of Greenwich and most of Woolwich. It is a great area for families and professionals to move to thanks to the combination of great historic sites such as Eltham Palace in Eltham and Blackheath and Greenwich park in North Greenwich home of the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

Things to see and do in Greenwich
A part of London bursting at the seams with world-class attractions, Greenwich is home to the iconic O2 Arena - formerly known as the Millennium Dome - where you can catch some of the planet’s most popular artists and events. A stroll around the Greenwich Peninsula reveals a trail of sculpture and modern art, while you can even climb over the arena’s roof for an awe-inspiring experience. Once you return to level ground, head to the Now Gallery and Emirates Aviation Experience with its flight simulators.
Moving away from the peninsula, Greenwich Park is a beautiful local highlight where you’ll find the Royal Observatory Greenwich, the Peter Harrison Planetarium and the iconic Prime Meridian Line. Visit the exceptional National Maritime Museum, step aboard the Cutty Sark and make sure you visit Greenwich Market and the local vintage market.
You may think there isn’t the room for great schools with so many top attractions in the area, but you’d be very wrong. Millennium Primary School is on the southern part of the peninsula and rated as outstanding by Ofsted, while Halstow Primary just off Woolwich Road is ranked just as highly by the education board. Saint Mary Magdalene CofE is an excellent all-through school off Millennium Way, while St Ursula’s Convent School is an outstanding girls’ school next to Greenwich Park.
Greenwich transport links
Greenwich’s popular entertainment venue and tourist hotpots mean it has excellent transport links, including river boat services which dock at Greenwich Pier. The Tube’s Jubilee line plunges underneath the Thames to stop at North Greenwich station next to the O2, while the DLR and other train services stop at Greenwich station along Greenwich High Road. You can also catch a cable car from Greenwich Peninsula across the Thames to the Royal Docks, and get to London City Airport in around half an hour.
The Greenwich property scene
Even thorough Greenwich has enjoyed property booms in the past, house prices in the area are actually lower than the London average. From Victorian terraces within the Ashburnham Triangle conservation area, to charming Georgian properties and apartments in nearby developments like Upton Gardens, this is a great place to buy a new home.
