We came here as we had tickets for the Cutty Sark and the Royal Observatory we purchased that day online for under 20 pounds per person, whereas is so much more expensive if purchased individually at the 'gate'. We came to the planetarium, after visiting...More

I was disappointed with how small the planetarium is. We were only there for about an hour and a half. However the presentation was really good.

Although the show/lecture is only half an hour long, we left feeling that we had experienced something significant. Certainly worth the £8 ticket. The astronomer who explained what we were seeing and could witness in our own night skies, was knowledgeable and clear. There are...More

Enlightening presentations improved by the presenter being a young Professor of Astronomy. Humour and education in very comfortable reclined seats and all over far too quickly. If you remember the old planetarium next to Madame Tussaud's this is smaller but better for being updated and...More
