The Royal Arsenal in Woolwich was historically an important site for manufacturing large guns and ammunition for the British Armed forces throughout the 19th and 20th century. The site is undergoing transformation into thousands of new homes and leisure facilities as part of the substantial Crossrail Project.

This will further enhance the already rejuvenating local property scene where modern penthouses, factory and warehouse conversions can be found amongst older terraced housing. The new Elizabeth Line Crossrail Station is scheduled for completion in 2020 and will further improve commuting from Woolwich by reducing journey times and creating new transport connections for locals to enjoy.

Woolwich Arsenal Station is in Travel Zone 4 and currently offers rail services to Cannon Street for The City and DLR services towards City Airport, Docklands and Canary Wharf. Traversing the River Thames by car, cycle or as a pedestrian is possible by utilising the Woolwich Ferry Service which operates frequent crossings 7 days a week from Woolwich to North Woolwich.

Retail is centred on Powis Street which is part pedestrianised and plays host to many popular retailers and is a bustling high street. Maryon Park is a Green Flag Award-winning site, an urban park which overlooks the River Thames and is traversed by the Green Chain Walk. Children can enjoy leisure time in the playground, there is also a basketball court and tennis courts.

Also part of the Green Chain Walk is Woolwich Common which can be found on the route between the Thames Barrier and Oxleas Wood. Woolwich is a popular place to live and with improving infrastructure and regeneration it will continue to attract tenants and purchasers alike.
