Exploring Greenwich from the O2 Arena

Hello! We are traveling to London in September for some events at the O2 arena. We have a few hours to kill between sessions and wondering if its feasible to explore Greenwich by foot during that time- see Greenwich Park and the Meridian Line, maybe visit a few pubs. Is this feasible or overly ambitious? TIA!

Welcome to Fodors. Very easy. Take the Jubilee Line from North Greenwich Station (next to the O2) to Canary Wharf, then a short walk to the DLR (light rail) station at Heron Quay and DLR to the Cutty Sark. Or take a bus from North Greenwich to the Trafalgar Estate stop adjacent to the Old Royal Naval College. Either journey would take about 20 minutes.

. . . meant to add you could also take a taxi -- but that would only save about 10 minutes

There are lots of pubs in Greenwich. A few:

The Cutty Sark (the pub, not the ship -- which s also worth a visit) has a full menu and waterside seating.

The Trafalgar Tavern is very large and also has waterside tables.

The Plume of Feathers is a CAMRA pub (Campaign for Real Ale) and is much smaller and is near the Queen's House and the park and s shorter walk to the Royal Observatory
