Due to its ideal location along the southern banks of the River Thames, Woolwich has held a prominent position of strength for both industry and military reasons. Since the 3rd century BC, remains show that there has always been a settlement here and indeed a Woolwich ferry crossing, although obviously not in its present form! To this day, Woolwich holds a perfect position for access all over London and this is part of the reason why our stunning Woolwich escorts enjoy living here so much.
Mentions are made of Woolwich in many old documents however it was not until the 16th century that it finally gained the appreciation it so rightfully deserved. So much of history is attributed to King Henry VIII and Woolwich was no exception. The Woolwich Dockyard as it became known, developed into a maritime, military and industrial beacon of success under this king’s guidance. The royal ship ‘The Great Harry’ as well as the ‘Prince Royal’, ‘sovereign of the seas’ and the ‘Dolphin’ were all built here however it was the military who dominated the area building their Royal artillery and Royal Military academy here. At times of war, tens of thousands of soldiers were employed here so Woolwich attracted traders of all kinds to service the needs of the men. Indeed, it was not just traders who found a need for their services but ladies of the night were also very much in demand and much like today, gentlemen can spend their spare time in the company of the very beautiful Woolwich escorts, albeit in much more comfortable surroundings.
Today these heritage buildings have been renovated and restored for use as residential apartments for beautiful waterside living. These make for wonderful locations to enjoy a tryst with any of our escorts in Woolwich, steeped in history yet with all the modern comforts one could desire. Finally the area is being reshaped into a place more suited to its Royal borough status and our Woolwich escorts are the perfect companions to explore it with. The Woolwich ferry is still in use today although the addition of the light docklands railway and new Crossrail links make Woolwich even more accessible to all other parts of the UK than ever before. The old Royal Arsenal buildings is a new development that will provide for 5000 homes, a hotel, offices and retail space which is something that even King Henry himself and his grand designs could never have envisaged.
The old historic buildings have not all been redeveloped into residential accommodation. The old munitions factory at Dial Square is today part of a pub and restaurant known as the Dial Arch. This is a fabulous place to enjoy an afternoon drink or a meal, especially on a warm day outside on the waterside terraces. Our Escorts Woolwich often come here as the building has been sympathetically renovated and remains an atmospheric place to go. Popular with football fans, the Dial Square munitions factory was reported to have fielded the original football team which later became Arsenal. Arsenal football club as originally called Dial square as it was made up of workers from the factory who wanted to enjoy the game during their work breaks.
