Greenwich is an old, quiet and relatively unmodernised part of London on its Eastern side, on the south side of the River Thames. It is most famous for being the place where the system of latitude and longitude, and thus world time, was developed in the 18th century (my history's not my strong point, Fix Please - Earle). It's quite quiet and feels like the kind of place where shady characters in back alleys would offer to sell you naval maps or antique captains' hats.
