Estate agents Greenwich & Letting agents Greenwich

If it weren’t for the view of Canary Wharf, you could believe that Greenwich was in the middle of the countryside. Easy to get to via foot tunnel or DLR, Greenwich covered market is the perfect place to go present shopping or to sample some freshly cooked street food.

Stretching along 8.5 miles of the south bank of the River Thames, Greenwich borough is an area steeped in history. The Queen made Greenwich a Royal Borough during her Diamond Jubilee in 2012. The area’s rich maritime history is clear from the number of institutions and attractions found in Greenwich; The Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, Cutty Sark, Old Royal Naval College, Prime Meridian and the National Maritime Museum to name but a few. Whilst these grand historic buildings, combined with an abundance of Georgian and Victorian properties, are genuinely breathtaking, they are only part of the story of Greenwich, as it is also home to striking contemporary architecture, such as the award-winning Laban building, the dance base of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

It would be remiss not to mention the association with Greenwich Mean Time, which is the mean solar time at Greenwich Royal Observatory. First used by British mariners, it was later adopted across the country in 1847, and in 1848 the meteorologist and astronomer James Glaisher delivered the world’s first weather forecast from the Royal Observatory.

Fulfilling your lifestyle aspirations…

There is a truly wonderful feel about Greenwich, owing in no small part to its location beside the river and to the wealth of antique, craft and book stores available. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, Greenwich Market is regarded as one of the best covered markets in London, with approximately 120 stalls selling antiques, art, crafts, home accessories and jewellery – you can even have a therapeutic massage.

One of the highlights in the Greenwich calendar is the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival (GDIF). This free outdoor event features over a hundred performances by artists from all over the world. Based on Royal Hill, The Cheeseboard sells a wonderful selection of fine artisan cheeses from the UK and Europe, as well as beers, wines, chutneys, olive oils and sauces. A popular haunt of David Beckham, the traditional pie and mash shop Goddards can be found in Greenwich, and you can burn off those extra calories later in Greenwich Park. Perched on a hilltop and covering 183 acres, it is the oldest enclosed Royal Park, dating back to Roman times.

What our clients say

“Marks professionalism, dedication and hard work on securing our property was outstanding. His ability to cut right to the important points and get business done efficiently is a great skill that people really need from their agent when looking for a property. The fact we both had the same designer socks on that day secured the deal but not sure how he did that :) Thanks for all your help it has been a pleasure dealing with you.”

Alan Quinn-Byrne

I am a nurse and I re scheduled the viewing a couple of times and Mark was amazing and very comprehensive. He has been available whenever I had any questions and very responsive. He managed to get me the deal that I was looking for. I would highly recommend Franklyn James and Mark K. Thank you very much Mark!”
