Greenwich ‘Did you know?’

  • The London Borough of Greenwich was formed in 1965 by merging the former areas of the metropolitan boroughs of Greenwich and most of Woolwich.
  • It was one of six host boroughs for the 2012 London Olympics and events were held at the Royal Artillery Barracks (shooting), Greenwich Park (equestrianism), and The O2 (gymnastics and basketball).
  • Greenwich became a Royal Borough on 3rd February 2012, due in part to its historic links with the Royal Family and to its UNESCO World Heritage Site status as home of the Prime Meridian.
  • The Prime Meridian, housed in the Royal Observatory, is the central line used to measure the distance across the world since 1714. The Observatory is also where Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) originated, on which all world times are based.
  • There are foot tunnels under the River Thames between Greenwich and Island Gardens in the borough of Tower Hamlets and between Woolwich and North Woolwich in the Borough of Newham.
