Summer Picnic

Join us in glorious Greenwich Park for a Sunday picnic. Time to chill, chat, eat and drink. If you would like to bring refreshments to share, email Hester at: and she will coordinate. Otherwise just bring something for yourself.

You can read about our picnic last year and see some photos here.

When: Sunday 7 August, meeting at 1pm. If you are running late, call one of the contact numbers and we can update you exactly where we are in the park. 

Where: Greenwich Park. We will meet at the main gates on Blackheath (the road there is called Charlton Way): see map here – we’ll be opposite the Greenwich Park Office. We plan to picnic where we did last year, a minute’s walk into the park, just outside the flower garden.

Extra information:

Car: there is car parking inside the park along the main avenue. Please see map here for exact location.
Bus: nearest bus stop to the main entrance is stop T served by buses 53 and 386 and stop S served by bus 53. Greenwich town centre is at the bottom of the park so a 10 min walk, and served by many bus routes. 
Train: nearest station is Blackheath, a 10 minute walk. Greenwich DLR and mainline, as well as Maze Hill stations are all a short walk (probably about 15 minutes) the other side of the park.

In the case of inclement weather, we will retreat to one of the cafes in the park or Observatory. 

Toilets: in addition to the cafe toilets, there are also public toilets just inside the main entrance.
