Why not make a day of it? Greenwich is a lovely spot; you can visit the Maritime Museum, stand on the Prime Meridian, and see some of London's most beautiful buildings.  It's easy to get there by train, but best of all, take the boat from Westminster pier for one of the city's loveliest boat trips.
