Timothy Cavendish claims to have a vast Regency house in Greenwich and an office in Haymarket  – not bad going for an impoverished publisher of third rate books.

Greenwich is known for its open parks, palatial landscapes, Georgian estates, royal connections and intellectual heritage. Positioned on the South Bank of the River Thames, and therefore the starting point for many an historical sea journey, Greenwich boasts the Royal Observatory, the Royal Naval College and the National Maritime Museum.
