Overview

Greenwich has become a well known tourist attraction through naval and royal connections dating back almost two thousand years. Greenwich has gone through many changes architecturally and culturally since tourists began visiting the area in the early 1800s, first by river boat and then by the latest innovation in public transport, the steam railway. Greenwich was put on the map literally in 1884 when Prime Meridian was officially positioned at the Royal Observatory.

Queen Elizabeth II bestowed Royal Borough status upon Greenwich, which comes into effect during the Diamond Jubilee in 2012, as recognition of royal associations with this historic riverside town. Essential reading for anyone who knows and loves the area, this publication is a colorful celebration of Royal Greenwich Through Time.
