Your experience

Highlights

  • An attraction not to be missed and located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Greenwich
  • Stand with one foot in the eastern hemisphere and the other in the west on the Greenwich meridian line
  • Enjoy one of the most popular views of London across Greenwich Royal Park and the Thames

Description

Are you ready to be in two places at once? Stand with one foot in the eastern hemisphere and the other in the west at London's Royal Observatory in Greenwich. In the home of space and time, learn all about the Greenwich meridian line and GMT and how it was chosen as the world's highest meridian in 1884! You will hear stories about astronomy, space and the stars and maybe even explore the world with new dreams.

Arrange your visit so that you can watch the bright red time ball fall on Flamsteed House, one of the world's first official time signals. Every day at 1:00.

Stand in Charles II's magnificent Octagon Room designed by Wren - also known as 'The Great Star Room' - and discover John Harrison's groundbreaking inventions that changed the world and solved the problem of length.

Also don't miss the Great Equatorial Telescope, the largest historic telescope in Britain, which gave astronomers new insights into the universe over 100 years ago.

This London landmark high on a hill not only offers fantastic views of Greenwich, but also brings to light the wonders of time and space as you follow in the footsteps of the astronomers of yesterday and today.
