Many of London’s highlights are located within easy reach of Woolwich, so it is a popular place to stay or visit on a day trip. Two of the most interesting places to see are the fascinating Royal Artillery Barracks and the incredible Excel Exhibition Centre. Two other great attractions within a short distance of Woolwich are Eltham Palace and Queen's House.
London is celebrated throughout the world as home to Big Ben. It is only less than 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the center of town.
Spend time in London’s center. You can’t miss Buckingham Palace, the Royal Albert Hall and Trafalgar Square.
If you love to find a great deal, visit Greenwich Market.
Sports fans visiting Woolwich should get tickets for nearby The Valley to see the Charlton Athletic playing visiting rivals. On game days follow the procession of red, white and black, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join fans at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a few post-game beers.
To really get to know Woolwich, consider staying at one of the area’s hotel or serviced apartment options. The Novotel London Excel, the Ramada Hotel and Suites London Docklands and the Novotel London Greenwich are among the best places to stay while you are enjoying this special area.
