Covering 74 hectares (183 acres), Greenwich is the oldest enclosed Royal Park and home to a small herd of Fallow and Red deer. Situated on top of a hill, visitors enjoy sweeping views across the River Thames to St Paul's Cathedral and beyond.

There has been a settlement on this site since Roman times, but Greenwich has always been strongly associated with royalty. Since the land was inherited by Henry V's brother, generations of monarchs have taken this magnificient park to their hearts.

There is a large grassland enclosure, covering almost 13 acres which serves as a sanctuary for deer, foxes and birds.
