About this spot
This location is one of the highest natural points of elevation within the city limits. It offers excellent views of the classical Greenwich Naval Colleges (designed by Christopher Wren who also designed St Paul’s Cathedral) with the modern Canary Wharf in the background – one of the finest examples of architectural contrast in the city. To the west (pictured) is a view of the City of London with its numerous skyscrapers. The site is also significant as the point of origin of the Greenwich Meridian Line.
