The Peninsula's history, evolving from marshes to a hub of industry, tells a fascinating tale. Initially drained in the 16th century, the land witnessed a grim chapter as pirates' remains adorned gibbets. From being a critical gunpowder store in the 17th century to a thriving industrial centre in the 19th century, the area underwent significant changes. The 1990s marked a turning point with the redevelopment, fuelled by the advent of transportation links, paving the way for the transformation of abandoned factories into a vibrant community. Greenwich Village situated in South London, boasts a significant maritime and royal history. Initially a royal residence in the 15th century, it gained importance for navigation with the establishment of the Royal Observatory in the 17th century. This contributed to the area's recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
