We saw the show about dark matter and were a bit sceptical. However we both came out raving about it. The staff are great and hang about afterwards to answer any questions. I’ll definitely be back to see the other shows..
I was looking forward to learning something here but was a bit disappointed. It's a live show which talks you through what you might see that night and takes about half an hour.
The seats are comfy recliners and it looks like you get the...More
Really nice show. Good combination of excitement, ingormation and visuals. Extra bonus that the introduction was done by one of the researchers working at the observatory. Think Star Wars with Darth (Dark) Vader (...Matters) and the (gravity) Force with X-wings (protons) colliding and exploding with...More
I bought tickets for my boyfriends birthday as he is a bit of a space nerd. The show was good which is why it won the 2 stars (i did expect more reading the reviews) but the the rest of the planetarium and observatory were...More
I remember going to see a show at the Planetarium near Madam Tussauds when I was about 8 years old so I think maybe my expectations were too high. We went to the see The Sky at Night - the show lasted about 30 minutes...More
What an amazing show. About 30 minutes long and worth every penny of the £8 each we paid to be thoroughly entertained by this factual but exciting spectacle of our Universe.
A young but incredibly bright astrologist brought the show to life, explaining some of...More
Came here on a Sunday and saw the Ted show. Well put together. And excellently presented by an American astronomer. Think there could be a few more facts and a bit more content, and maybe some stars in the night sky stuff. But both mine...More
I took my girlfriend up to see a show in the planetarium and it was amazing. We both loved it. The show was very insightful. But be careful not to fall asleep as the chairs are super comfortable. The staff were very friendly too as...More
With an 11 year-old and two slightly younger we booked two days in advanced for the "Meet the Neighbours " presentation. It was easy to book and was very good. Take my tip and get there 15 mins before so that you can sit near...More
We saw 'The Sky Tonight' show and it was really great. It was like being a little kid again and has definitely reignited a passion for all things space related. The show was presented by Greg who was brilliant and very witty. Very enjoyable, would...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
laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
