There’s more to Greenwich than meets the eye

The leafy Royal Borough of Greenwich is one of the most desirable locations in London. It has a wonderfully rich history, royal connections and stunning architecture, but there’s more to Greenwich than the headline attractions…

Greenwich is one of four Royal Boroughs in London, having earned the title in 2010 through its royal connections dating back to the 15th Century. Within its ancient boundaries you can see echoes of its royal past and the part the borough played in the country’s rise to become a maritime powerhouse, however there’s another side to Greenwich. It has produced giants of the acting world, it’s a magnet for some of the world biggest selling musical stars, and there’s a world of activity on the River Thames… and under it!

Lights, camera, action: Welcome to Ealing

With Victorian semis neatly lined along leafy roads, an impressively over-the-top town hall and acres of verdant parks, Ealing in West London sounds like a film location, which is close to the truth.

Ealing is the third largest borough in London by population with around 340,000 residents, but with 330 hectares designated as part of the Metropolitan Green Belt in the borough there is an abundance of green space. The borough has a long history – the Church of St. Mary’s in Ealing dates from the early 12th Century, and the Victorian architecture characterises much of the area. However, it’s the film industry’s links with Ealing dating back to 1902 which define the borough.
