Greenwich Park London

Greenwich Park in London today covers 74 hectares and its Wilderness area is a home to a small herd of fallow and red deer. In the centre of the Park is the Royal Observatory, which contains gardens, open areas, a popular boating lake and children's playground. Sporting facilities and a cafeteria are nearby.

The park, which is part of the Greenwich World Heritage Site, was the birthplace of Henry VIII who introduced deer to the park. In 1433, Greenwich Park in London was the first Royal Park to be enclosed.

Throughout its history the park has become a popular film location in London. It was the setting for The Secret Agent (1996), Christopher Hampton's adaptation of Joseph Conrad's novel. You can also spot scenes from the Park in Layer Cake (2004).

The London Greenwich Park is also a popular event venue. Various open air theatre productions take place regularly and combine professional, fascinating plays with the good weather and friendly atmosphere.

Bandstand concerts are usually more frequent during the summer and children entertainment is worth the praise: traditional storytelling combining physical theatre, fooling and musical instruments.
