Interesting place to start your visit of Greenwich because you can get some interesting information like a map for ex. and the highlights of what you can expect to visit in Greenwich. There are even some fun interactive things to do for children and the shop is also nice

This is a great place to start a visit of Greenwich, it is situated just by the Cutty Sark. The centre provides a fascinating history of the area and its buildings along with the architects involved in its construction.
