Greenwich

Greenwich is a 20-minute walk from the Goldsmiths campus. With strong maritime connections and status as a world heritage site, Greenwich has history and beauty galore. Famous attractions like the Cutty Sark ship and National Maritime Museum (which is free) sit side-by-side with bars, theatres, comedy clubs and restaurants. 

There are plenty of options to keep you entertained: try the Greenwich Picturehouse for arty films, browse the markets, or take a walk along the river.

There is so much choice for food in Greenwich, but for low-cost, hearty Chinese meals head to Tai Won Mein, near the Cutty Sark, or try the Cockney staple, pie and mash, at Goddards. The cheapest way to eat in this area is to take a picnic to the 183-acre Greenwich Park, which has amazing views over London, and is home to the Royal Observatory.

I really like Greenwich Market. So, I'm not a vegan myself, but my flatmate is a vegan. Greenwich Market, because it's good for vegans. And then there's the Greenwich Park as well, which is really nice to go with your friends.
