The village and the peninsula gives you the feel of being in London without actually living in London. With long expanses of greenery and long river walks the village atmosphere offers a choice of restaurants, cinemas and venues at the O2. There is also local retail parks including great names such as Sainsbury's B&Q, Curries/Dixon's, Next, John Lewis, Boots, PC World, and eateries such as Nando's and Pizza Hut.
Greenwich Millennium Village also boasts a very high quality Holiday Express Hotel which also houses the Peninsula Restaurant regarded as one of the best Chinese restaurants in the whole of the London area.
Within the local skyline you can see sights such as the towers of Canary Wharf, the Thames Barrier, Greenwich Observatory (which is very nearby) and the Old Naval College - now Greenwich University.
After a very short drive/taxi or bus ride you can reach the ever famous village of Blackheath where you can find the most amazing array of restaurants,
cafés and art galleries.
