Greenwich Park is one of the Royal Parks, an iconic grassland enclosure covering almost 183 acres which serves as a sanctuary for deer, foxes and birds. It's a lovely place for a family ramble particularly for nature lovers, so it's also a great idea to take along bird and bug books so you can identify what you're finding, and binoculars so you can find even more!
As well as The Observatory and Planetarium (both of which can be explored by appointment) they also offer a bandstand, a nicely equipped children's adventure playground and entertainment such as puppet shows and workshops during summer school holidays, excluding Sundays. A particularly popular one is Moths and Minibeasts, which carries a small charge but is well worth it.
There are numerous refreshment points and full facilities including disabled access too so it's not exactly into the wild, but has that same sort of feel once you're out there. Groups and schools can enjoy the facilities at the Secret Garden Wildlife Centretoo!
