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. The show allows guests to fly into the heart of the Sun, be transported to faraway galaxies, see the birth of a star and land on Mars.
