Even though there are many great places to live in London, people need to make sure that the area they choose is right for them. Greenwich has a lot to offer, and if you are looking for a part of the capital that has a tremendous sense of history, it is hard to find a better area. The borough lies at the heart of English maritime history, and there is a sense of family tradition in the area.
Of course, this history and grandeur is no use if you cannot get to and from work easily. There is a need for transport options, and this is true whether you are a tourist looking to explore Greenwich or a homeowner needing to commute daily. Greenwich may not be overloaded with transport options in the same way that some parts of London are, but you should find there are more than enough options at your disposal.
The centre of Greenwich is very well-connected to the City and Canary Wharf. If you work in these areas, you should find you can make your way to the office with a minimum of fuss and effort.

The Tube helps people get in and out of North Greenwich
There is also the North Greenwich tube station, which provides plenty of options to get around the capital. This station, which lies on the Jubilee Line, is associated with the O2 venue, but it has provided many options for commuters in this part of the local area.
