Area Feature

Woolwich is an area of London that has a rich history, which is evident on almost every corner. Although it experienced a decline in earlier decades due to the closure of a few key businesses in the area, it has experienced a rejuvenation throughout the last few years. Woolwich is fast becoming one of the most sought-after places to live in capital, with plenty of reason.

All about Woolwich

Woolwich began life as an industrial and military town with important locations including the Woolwich Dockyard, the Royal Military Academy and the Royal Arsenal. Local workers in the area formed Arsenal Football Club in the area in 1886 and ever since there has been a sense of pride over this sport.

Over the last few years Woolwich has received a lot of investment, allowing the area to return to its former glory. With improved transport links and new businesses opening, more people have been opting to move to the area. Thanks to a surge in the numbers of young professionals opting to live in Woolwich rather than pay the ever increasing costs of a Central London postcode, shops, restaurants and pubs have all benefited; further improving the local economy. 

Housing options

Those wishing to live in the rising star of the London borough of Greenwich have got a number of property options to choose from. Both houses and flats are available for sale and rent - although renting is most often the cheaper option. Whether a single professional or a family, the area offers some lovely properties that range from Victorian to the newer options, such as the rejuvenated former army barracks. 

Residents of the area also benefit from open green spaces, such as Woolwich Common, which offers beautiful views of the city and the River Thames. These open areas add a touch of the idyllic countryside to busy city living, allowing residents and visitors alike to enjoy some time outside.


The improvement to transport links throughout Woolwich have helped to make it a more desirable place for those that commute to other areas of the city. As well as the foot tunnel for cyclists and pedestrians to get across the Thames, residents can also use the free Woolwich Ferry, which runs across the river to North Woolwich. The ferry service provides passage for cars, pedestrians, trucks and cyclists.

Other river services also run to allow quick and easy transport across the river and into the heart of the city, making it relatively simple to commute or travel to enjoy all the amenities that London has to offer.

Things to do

Woolwich offers a great range of things to do for all age groups and is an incredibly lively area of London to live in. As well as a good variety of shops and eateries, the area boasts a water park - complete with wave machine and slide - and a number of other sporting facilities. The Waterfront Leisure Centre also provides a range of classes and organised activities for most age groups, as well as creche facilities for families.
