Welcome to Greenwich, home to a World Heritage Site and London’s oldest Royal Park and the place where hemispheres meet.

Greenwich Royal Observatory Experience

 

A top-10 UK visitor attraction, Royal Museums Greenwich is home to the Royal Observatory Greenwich, the iconic historic sailing ship Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum and the Queen’s House art gallery. All our attractions are located within easy walking distance of each other within a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

Visit the Royal Observatory Greenwich to stand on the historic Prime Meridian of the World, see the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), and explore your place in the universe at London’s only planetarium. The historic Royal Observatory is the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Enter the Meridian Courtyard to get your essential photo standing on the Meridian Line and explore some of the oldest parts of the site including the Astronomer Royal's house.

 

It's a time honoured tradition for visitors to Greenwich to make the pilgrimage up the hill in Greenwich Park and get their photo taken on the official Prime Meridian Line - will you join in the fun?

 

Since the late 19th century, the Prime Meridian at Greenwich has served as the reference line for GMT. The world's prime meridian divides the eastern and western hemispheres of the earth - just as the equator divides the northern and southern hemispheres. In 1884 the Prime Meridian was defined by Transit Circle telescope at the Royal Observatory which was built by Sir George Biddell Airy, the 7th Astronomer Royal, in 1850. The cross-hairs in the eyepiece of the telescope precisely defined Longitude 0° for the world.

 

Visit the Planetarium and Astronomy Centre at the Royal Observatory Greenwich and take an awe inspiring journey into space. We're home to London's only planetarium where you can meet our astronomers and journey through the universe from the comfort of your seat, unravel the mysteries of the cosmos at the free interactive Weller Astronomy Galleries, see stunning images of space from all around the world at our annual Insight Astronomy Photography of the Year competition and get your hands on our 4.5 billion year-old meteorite.
