Description

Greenwich is home to the Royal Observatory, well known for its role in the history of astronomy and navigation. Take an amazing journey through the historic home of British astronomy, Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian of the World. Explore how pioneering scientists mapped the seas and the stars, stand astride two hemispheres on the Prime Meridian Line, see revolutionary inventions including the UK’s largest refracting telescope, and touch a 4.5 billion-year-old asteroid.

After exploring, travel the universe and experience the wonders of the night sky with expert commentary from Royal Observatory Astronomers at the Peter Harrison Planetarium, London's only planetarium.

Reviews

  • Out of this world experience

    The Planetarium Show was informative, beautifully visual and very well presented.
    The dining experience and food was five star and the staff made it a very special experience.

    Truly memorable day

    Very enjoyable day, found the Royal Observatory and the Sky by Night Show very interesting. Dinner at the Intecontinental Hotel was excellent and the waiting staff were very professional and attentive.

  • Excellent and outstanding

    Very enjoyable day at the Royal Observatory. Outstanding meal and service at the peninsular restaurant.

    Amazing!

    The show was great and the food at the restaurant was amazing! We are already looking to go back asap.

  • Fantastic day out

    Fantastic Day - what a wonderful day out. Located in picturesque grounds. The planetarium show was hosted by one of the actual astrologers who worked at the planetarium and it was extremely interesting. Both the observatory and planetarium had a good mix of interactive and informative activities for all ages. We then took a short walk into Greenwich down to the Cutty Sark. Finished off at the beautiful Peninsula Restaurant where the staff went out of their way to accommodate my husbands dietary requirements.

    Nice day out

    Nice day out. Really do need to make sure you are at the planetarium at least 10 mins early as they shut the doors very promptly! Lovely meal and pleasant view, but finding the restaurant a little troublesome.... it's in the intercontinental Hotel.

  • A good day!

    The entire day out was well managed and efficiently organised by the booking staff for a memorable day- thanks.

    Excellent day out

    Everything was excellent. The observatory and the dining experience. The only minor problem was that when I went to the dinner they didn't know I had upgraded to the 7 course dinner and I had to stand there flicking through emails to show them I had. This was a minor but still an issue that was not expected.

  • Easy to book

    Overall easy to book for both events but limited times for the planetarium show.

    Perfect combination

    Fantastic show and the restaurant was amazing, lovely views, delicious food and the staff were lovely. Would definitely return.

  • Fantastic Day out

    Headline says it all!

    Spot on
