More about Greenwich
Greenwich is a very popular place to live for teachers as it is so close to the centre of London and has such fantastic transport links with rail, tube and bus links to the rest of London and a number of river bus stops including Greenwich centre itself. It is such a good location that we have our UK office in North Greenwich just next to the O2!
The newly built Elizabeth Line is due to start service in 2018 and this will make Greenwich even more accessible and popular with easy rail journeys across London from the east and west. London Transport makes finding and planning routes and booking journeys very simple at and the National Rail site is excellent for rail journeys. It is worth remembering that for all journeys using public transport in the London area the cheapest option is to use an Oyster card (available from stations and many shops) or a contactless bank card.
There is also City Airport Airport is just across the river with fast links from Greenwich on the DLR and it is easy to fly from there to destinations all over Europe and in the UK.
The Eurostar rail service to Europe is close by at Ebbsfleet in Kent making it very easy to visit destinations in western Europe by train. From Ebbsfleet, you could be in Paris in 2hrs 12m!
