One of the joys of travelling with Airbnb is the opportunity to tap into your host's local knowledge and get the inside track on your destination.

Christian is an Airbnb host with a home between the river and Greenwich Park and offers his spare room to travellers. He, like many other hosts, is developing a personal guide to Greenwich for his guests to use featuring some of the obvious blockbuster attractions of SE10 alongside some only a local would know.
