Greenwich is one of London’s most popular places for visitors and why not add a touch of class to your day out with your own personal chauffeur-driven car? Chauffeur One is a leading provider of London executive chauffeurs. Our drivers have received full training and are dressed in a smart uniform.

Using the services of a London chauffeur offers you a number of distinct advantages. You do not have to worry about finding a parking spot or paying parking charges. If you use or have used London’s public transport systems you will know how extensive they are, but public transport experiences delay and, at peak times, overcrowding. Having your own chauffeur avoids delays and means you can relax in the comfort of a luxury executive car. On a trip from central London to Greenwich, you will get the full appreciation of using a chauffeur-driven car. Chauffeur One cars are equipped with Wi-Fi and there is a range of magazines provided to read during your journey.

Greenwich is located on the River Thames and is famous for its association with England’s maritime history. Greenwich gives its name to the Greenwich Meridian and Greenwich Mean Time, the time zone in which the UK is based. The prime meridian established at Greenwich in the 1880s came to be widely used as a reference meridian on charts and maps for ships. The prime meridian passes through the observatory at Greenwich and is marked by a strip made of stainless steel. Greenwich’s maritime associations are reflected also in its use as a location for the Cutty Sark. The clipper ship was built in 1869 and was one of the fastest clipper ships used for transporting tea. It is located in a dry dock and is open to visitors.

The aforementioned Royal Observatory in Greenwich is another highlight of a visit to the area. Commissioned in 1675 by King Charles II, the observatory is a museum today with scientific work done elsewhere, but it does have a working planetarium and is well worth a visit.

Greenwich has a rich history that visitors can learn about. The Royal Palace built in the 15th century became the Royal naval College in 1873 and some of its historic rooms remain open to visitors. Greenwich Park offers a panoramic view of London if you want to take a photo of the city’s skyline.

A day out in Greenwich would not be complete without a bite to eat. Options include street food from the vibrant market or a relaxing riverside pub lunch. Chauffeur One’s drivers are familiar with London’s many neighbourhoods and can help you choose where to dine as well as what to see and do. Alternatively, you can bring a picnic that your driver will look after for you until you are ready to eat.

A Russian-speaking taxi London service is not something readily obtained, but if you are a native Russian-speaker, with Chauffeur One you have the option of a driver who will communicate with you in your own language, meaning that no detail is overlooked.
