The Coco Barclay home

The Coco Barclay brand was born in the Royal London borough of Greenwich, with its rich history, baroque architecture and buzzing atmosphere makes it the perfect place to be inspired.

Greenwich is famous for its maritime history which often inspires Coco Barclay designs. Greenwich houses many famous landmarks such as the National Maritime Museum, Royal Hospital School and the Greenwich Meridian which tells us what we cannot live without....the time!

The most famous of all the Greenwich riches is the Cutty Sark, built in 1869 for the Jock Willis shipping line and used for the tea trade. Shes had a tough life though, being damaged by fire twice in recent years, first on 21 May 2007 while undergoing conservation. She was restored and reopened to the public on 25 April 2012 but on 19 October 2014 she was damaged again, nevertheless she is still in Greenwich being marveled at by many a tourist!

There is so much rich heritage in Greenwich and the best way to find out more is to come and visit! Whether a rainy day to explore the museums along with fantastic shopping or a summers day for walking in the park and exploring the market.

Not only the Coco Barclay studio, but also the Coco Barclay shop is situated in Greenwich, just outside Greenwich Markets main entrance, 4 College Approach, Greenwich, Greater London SE10 9HZ.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
