For a decade, Greenwich Millennium Village has been an established, sustainable community at the forefront of a monumental regeneration.
Situated on the Greenwich Peninsula, GMV is within easy access of fantastic amenities such as The O2, the Peninsula Retail Park and Greenwich Shopping Park.
With a superb local transport network you can be at Canary Wharf within two minutes, at Stratford in nine minutes for the Westfield Shopping Centre or in the West End in 20 minutes via North Greenwich Station on the Jubilee line.
Now, amid the sensational success of the Peninsula’s development, GMV is at the start of a new chapter.
A vibrant new landmark for London
GMV is at the centre of Greenwich Peninsula’s emerging business, education, commercial and leisure districts, yet also enjoys the attractions of historical Greenwich and some of London’s most beautiful walks and open spaces.
GMV has the unique benefit of its own parkland, including the thriving Ecology Park, and has easy access to the landscaped Central Park running the length of the Peninsula.
The whole area is designed with an emphasis on walking, cycling and the use of public transport over the car, thus contributing towards a safe, calm and healthy environment for the benefit of all.
Established in 1908, The Greenwich Yacht Club is located to the southern end of the development with superb facilities including excellent river access, a club bar with stunning river views, drying and deep water moorings, a large yard and workshops. Greenwich Yacht Club currently has over 400 members and is a social and educational hub, as well as the perfect place for boating enthusiasts.
The area surrounding Greenwich is rich in history and culture, ranging from the meridian line at the Royal Observatory and National Maritime Museum, to the newly restored Cutty Sark and the Old Royal Naval College.
Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, The Old Naval College is widely considered an architectural masterpiece and forms the centrepiece of Maritime Greenwich, a World Heritage Site. Greenwich is also home to one of London’s best markets and also a number of the capital’s best loved pubs and green open spaces, such as Greenwich Royal Park and Blackheath Common.
A stunning centrepiece and one of London’s most instantly recognisable landmarks, the O2 is Europe’s leading entertainment destination, and a benchmark for the remarkable revival of the peninsula.
The O2 is so much more than just a dome;it is an entire entertainment district and leisure space. Under the venue’s iconic roof on the tip of Greenwich Peninsula lies a breathtaking arena which plays host to the biggest names in rock and pop.
In 2008, it became the world’s busiest venue, taking the crown from MEN Arena with ticket sales of more than two million. The Dome was originally built to house the Millennium Experience, a major exhibition to celebrate the start of the third millennium. In June 2007, the Dome reopened as the O2 after receiving a £600 million facelift.
The Dome’s shell itself remained, but its interior and the area around North Greenwich station, the QE2 pier, and the main entrance to the plaza were completely redeveloped.
The O2 now plays host to a wide variety of major events from music to sport, comedy to ice shows, and will play a key part in hosting the 2012 Olympic Games.
The combination of a well designed and integrated transportation system, superb facilities and one of the world’s truly iconic buildings has made the O2 the venue of choice for some of the greatest performing artists, international sporting events and shows alike.
An impressive range of facilities includes: an indoor arena, music club, cinema,parking for 2,200 cars, an exhibition space, piazzas and bars and restaurants including Union Square, Gaucho, Thai Silk and Las Iguanas to name but a few.
