Geocache Description:

This series takes you around the outside of the park to each of the park's 11 historic gates. All the caches are outside the park boundary and all are accessible 24 hours a day even if the park is shut. The numbering in the series takes you around the park in a widdershins direction ending up back at the north side.

Located on a hilltop overlooking London, Greenwich Park is one of the city's most beautiful parklands. It is the oldest enclosed Royal parkland and is home to the Old Royal Observatory, the brand new Planetarium (which is fab and well worth a visit) and the zero line of the Prime Meridian.

St Mary’s Gate is the main entrance to the park on the north side carefully watched by the statue of King William IV. The road behind you, King William’s Walk, takes its name from the fact that it used to be a red light district visited often by King William IV. Hence the name of the local pub ‘The King’s Arms’.

You’re looking for a Magnetic micro. Please be muggle safe! Leaning on the top and pretending to take a photograph might work well to disguise what you’re finding.

On your way to the next gate don’t forget to enjoy the wonderful Herb Garden to you east with it’s collection of over 40 herbs.

MUGGLE ALERT – all the areas around the park are very busy – especially at weekends – so please be mindful it keeping this circular series of new caches safe from Mr & Mrs Muggle.
