GREENWICH: HOME TO TIME AND THE PIE AND MASH SHOP

  You can travel between Greenwich and central London by bus, tube, railway and boat which makes it a popular place to live for commuters. The parks and local amenities mean it is also a good place for families to live. Greenwich's history is closely linked to the docklands which were once vital for trade and industry, but have now been regenerated and offer everything from canoeing to dragon boat racing as well as new offices and bars.

  We asked Charlotte Greaves, who lived in a house share in East Greenwich, to tell us about the place.

  How has Greenwich changed over the past five years?

  'Although the Millennium Dome project is seen as an expensive mistake it did a lot for the area with a new tube link to East Greenwich, new supermarkets, cinemas, shops and more. The transport links have changed what was more of an industrial area into a place where there is more for local people.'

  What do you like about Greenwich?

  'The weekend markets are great for fresh food, drinks and arts and crafts including jewellery. It's great for fresh bread and olives and in general a great place for shopping.'

  Who lives in Greenwich?

  'It's a real mix of people. It's quite expensive to live in the centre of Greenwich so it's quite a well-to-do area. There is also a university and there are lots of parks, schools and libraries for families. The transport link to London means it's an attractive place for commuters to live.'

  What is there for young people to do?

  'It's on London's doorstep so it's really easy to go into London to socialise and see friends. In Greenwich there are bars, restaurants, a comedy club, dance clubs and cinemas. The bars and restaurants are very multi-cultural with popular noodle bars and Mexican restaurants alongside the very British pie and mash shop.'

  Do any big festivals or events take place in Greenwich?

  'Greenwich marks the starting point of the London Marathon and there are lots of other entertainment events going on, especially during the summer with regular festivals usually with lots of street theatre. In 2012 London is hosting the Olympics and Greenwich will be hosting nine of the 21 events including shooting, equestrian, basketball and gymnastics.'

  Overall a fantastic place to live!
