From a prestigious road neighbouring Greenwich Park to a famous example of Georgian architecture – these are the most popular roads to live on in Greenwich according to estate agents.

Known for its links to royalty, historical buildings and attractions, and picturesque green spaces, Greenwich is one of south east London’s most popular destinations.

With the recently added Elizabeth Line running through Woolwich and Abbey Wood, offering travel links to central London, it’s also a prime location for buyers looking to purchase a home in the capital.

According to Steve Brown, manager of estate agent Winkworth’s Blackheath, these are currently the most popular streets to buy homes in Greenwich.

Crooms Hill

Located on the west side of Greenwich Park, Crooms Hill spans 0.6 miles and is home to opulent buildings dating back to the Georgian era.

Would-be homeowners covet this area on account of its “prestige” and views of Greenwich Park.

The road is also home to the Fan Museum, with its collection of fans from around the world.

Gloucester Circus

A prime example of Georgian architecture, Gloucester Circus came as one of the most coveted areas to live within a short walk of Greenwich Park.

The circus was first built between 1791 and 1898 by Michael Searles, the architect behind The Paragon located in Blackheath.

It’s also a five-minute walk from Greenwich station, offering good travel connections to central London by rail and DLR.

Blackheath Park

Blackheath Park is the tree-lined flagship road off the private Cator Estate, within close walking distance to Blackheath Village and Blackheath Station.

The Paragon

Constructed by the same architect that designed Gloucester Circus, The Paragon is a Grade I listed house linked by colonnades with a private broadway off Blackheath.

The Paragon was described by town planner Professor Abercrombie as the “most important surviving example of Georgian architecture in the country".

It’s located on the south side of Blackheath, with travel links to London from Blackheath Station and within walking distance of Blackheath Village, with its array of independent shops and local pubs.

St Germans Place

Located on the east side of Blackheath, within close proximity of Greenwich Park, St Germans Place offers 1820s buildings first created by Lord Eliot.

This location is popular with would-be homeowners for its views of the Heath itself.

Eaglesfield Road

Fronting Shrewsbury Park and Shooters Hill Tennis Club, Eaglesfield Road is a street of Edwardian houses with views looking towards the Kent countryside.

It neighbours Oxleas Wood and Woolwich Common, offering great spots for dog walkers and hikers.

Red Lion Lane

This street is a popular spot for homeowners due to its “diverse mix” of property ages and styles, linking Shooters Hill Road to Herbert Road.

The road neighbours Woolwich Common and even has a pub in walking distance – The Red Lion pub.

Duke of Wellington Avenue

Running through the heart of the Royal Arsenal Development, Duke of Wellington Avenue is a popular spot for homeowners.

It has good travel links to central London via the Elizabeth Line from Woolwich Station and Uber Clipper Boats from Woolwich (Royal Arsenal) Pier.
