Romantic Greenwich

Well – it is St Valentine’s Day, after all. And The Phantom is going all gooey on you. I am on a quest to find the most romantic place in Greenwich and I want your personal favourites. I don’t care where it is – a restaurant, a quiet corner of Greenwich Park, round the back of the bicycle sheds – it just has to be romantic for you.

Lovely stories, Our Song-stylee, optional, but I am looking for geographical specifics. If it’s Greenwich Park I want GPS co-ordinates (no, not really – a good description will do). If it’s a cosy restaurant, which table is the best? A street? Which corner? The Picturehouse? Which seat? If it’s Blackheath Tea Hut, I want to know what time of day/year you love most. If it’s the bike sheds – well, ok, you can keep that one to yourselves.

I’m not necessarily talking about relationship-style romance either. Just a Greenwich place that really moves you to think lovely thoughts, that gives you a warm glow inside…

For once, I’ll chip in with my own two-penn’orth later, but for now I’ll leave you with this picture I took on my sewer-quest last week, of an alarmingly-pruned Leylandii, proving that even bad gardening can be romantic…
