We watched the show about our neighbours in the Solar system. It was interesting and easy for the kids to follow. I personally thought the exhibition surrounding the show was more interesting for an adult, but I guess it depends on what show you choose...More

After living in London for years, I only recently found out about the planetarium and the fact that it has regular shows at a very reasonable price. We choose the sky tonight, which is great as you can use the knowledge learnt in real time....More

One of London's must see attractions. And it's free! We didn't have a chance to spent a lot of time in the planetarium. We just quickly walked around all available places to see what is available. We will have to plan another trip to London...More

We have now been to the New York Planetarium and London. I think New Yorks was slightly better. Seats were more comfortable at New York. This Planetarium was informative and the photography was visual information stunning. Compared to other London Tourist attractions, this wasn't overpriced.

This is a 30 minute show that costs £8 and is well worth the money. It is informative and interesting and we had a very funny guide leading the show which made it even better. The stars and planets look amazing and the atmosphere is...More

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park
and a number of related buildings (and one world
famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World
Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a
