About
A visit to London is not complete without visiting the Royal Observatory Greenwich where you will stand astride the Prime Meridian Line, with one foot in the east and the other in the west, at the home of GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). Walk in the footsteps of the Astronomers Royal, discover their stories, and experience the past, present and future wonders of astronomy, space and the stars. Enjoy dramatic views of London across Greenwich Royal Park, the City of London and the River Thames. As part of an exciting redevelopment project taking place at the Royal Observatory, essential refurbishment works will be carried out from 1st November 2021 until 1st January 2022. Some of the galleries and attractions at the Royal Observatory will be affected. Visitors will still be able to see the Meridian Line and courtyard, the Camera Obscura, the Meridian Building including 3 telescope transit rooms, the Time for Society gallery, the Great Equatorial Telescope, and the Shepherds Gate Clock.

Not a stand alone attraction.
Nov 2021
On a recent stay in Greenwich we combined a visit to the Cutty Sark with the Royal Observatory. Despite already having tickets we still had to queue at the ticket office as there was no else to check tickets and once inside we found one of the main room not in use on that day. On the whole we felt that there wee some great views from up here but there wasn't enough to do to make this a stand alone attraction.

Enjoyable day out
Aug 2021
Prepare for loads of people to be around if the day is pretty. We visited the Cutty Sark, then the Observatory. (quite a walk uphill!) Gorgeous views out to London city center. Enjoyed the Observatory, and standing on the Prime Meridian was really cool. We walked the grounds and meandered about. Found a pub that had open tables, so be sure to scout out where and when you will want to eat.

I would not recommend paid £8.50, my family spent 10 mins tops because there wasn't much to see or do. It's very small it's not worth money.

Great Greenwich Activity!
Excellent exhibition and some very knowledgeable staff on hand to enhance the visit, especially Chris who imparted some stories about the site and the local area.

The birthplace of Greenwich meantime. So interesting & if you can go 1pm to watch the ball drop
Jul 2021
We did this as a duo ticket with Cutty Sark and it is really very interesting and a lot to see. It is the birthplace of Greenwich meantime. You can stand on the meridian line here. If you go here around 1pm then make sure you are outside to watch the ball rise and then fall at precisely 1pm. This is so ships know when it was exactly 1pm which could be seen from the River Thames. Definately well worth the climb up to the top of the hill to go around and get some lovely views over London too.

Amazing brains!
Had a long walk going up to the observatory as we used the north greenwich underground and hopped in bus 188.It was a good one as there was plenty to see along the way and get the heart pumping a bit and upon reaching the top, you will be presented by a magnificent view of the capital city!it is just beautiful up there.Take a little breather and enjoy the sight and then get inside and have a good look around about the history of how everything was discovered about this prime meridian and time and clocks.Lastly get a good pose outside along the line!
The staff are very nice and toilets are clean!

Home of the Prime Meridien
A small museum (30 mins) dedicated to observing the stars and the Prime Meridien. If you’re interested in the history of clocks then this is definitely the place for you but it’s pretty small and a bit dilapidated.

Worth a visit!
Really enjoyed the visit, lasted about 90 minutes. Two buildings to look around, but be aware that once you enter the Meridian House the one way system takes you out of the museum altogether so do this last and use the loos before entering Meridian House. Fantastic views from the courtyard. Well worth a visit.

Great place to visit and a bit of history
Jul 2021
Perched on top of the hill above the Royal Naval College, this is a very interesting place to visit wherever you are from as the world now conforms to the time norms established here and benefits from the astronomical discoveries and the development of navigation aids. You can also picnic in the park or use the cafes and can combine this with a visit to the Cutty Sark and/or a walk under the Thames using the Victorian tunnel to get to Canary Wharf.
