Up and coming Woolwich
Once a town in Kent, Woolwich is now a district of south-east London, in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It was also the original home of Arsenal FC, who are now located in the north of the capital. For much of its history, Woolwich has been an important military and industrial area, but is currently undergoing an urban renewal programme. It's possible to cross the River Thames here via a ferry and a footpath to the London Docklands.
