Hostels in Greenwich
While only a few miles from London, Greenwich is a famous destination in it's own right. Maritime Greenwich is a UNSECO World Heritage Site due to it's important historical significance. The Royal Observatory is the primary destination in Greenwich, as it home to the Prime Meridian Line and Greenwich Mean Time. It is the official start to each day, and as such is an exciting place to be. The Observatory also boats a planetarium and museum. Also in this city is the Cutty Sark, a giant sea-faring Clipper from the 19th century. Stroll around the rest of Greenwich Park or play frisbee with the local residents on a sunny afternoon. Greenwich Market is a great place to buy souvenirs from your trip. The ""market"" is actually several markets all within walking distance of one another and selling goods like food, antiques, furniture, and books. The pubs in Greenwich are notable, and tourists should definitely visit at least one for a pint while in the area. A trip to Greenwich can easily last longer than a day, so staying overnight in a hostel or private apartment is recommended.
Enjoy a hostel for your stay in Greenwich!
Hostels are affordable places to stay for those traveling on a budget. The downside to these cheap hostels, however, is that they can be impersonal for guests. Rather than paying for a plain bed in a boring room, consider renting a privately-owned apartment from a website like Wimdu. Like a hostel, these apartments are very affordable. But unlike a hostel, an apartment can be a welcoming and warm environment. There is a great opportunity to become close friends with your host, and perhaps enjoy a traditional meal of fish and chips together while learning about the neighborhood. Your host can guide you to local attractions, or give you directions to a great new restaurant. These personal, friendly touches are what makes apartment rentals more attractive than hostels.
