Greenwich Borough is home to many historic sites including the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site featuring the Old Royal Naval College.

A Furniturebox spokesperson said: “Greenwich is the most stylish place to live in London.

"All 60 places on the list would have been worthy winners and show why the UK is such a stylish country, loved by artists, film-makers and tourists from all over the world.

“What is interesting is how influential Instagram has become in boosting tourism in many of our top 60, particularly around London. It is a massive help for visitor numbers, too, if a popular film or TV show uses a town or village as a location.
