Well worth the trip up the hill. Great show in the planetarium area with a number of breakout areas to discover. Not a lot else but very cool nonetheless.

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

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
