Astronomy Café and Gagarin Terrace at the Royal Observatory

Situated adjacent to the Peter Harrison Planetarium in the Astronomy Centre of the Royal Observatory, this café features the Gagarin Terrace with views over Greenwich Royal Park. The café serves hot and cold drinks, including organic and Fair Trade tea and coffee, soups, and hot and cold snacks. Due to limited space, we encourage groups to use the catering facilities at the National Maritime Museum.

Shopping at Royal Museums Greenwich

Cutty Sark, the Royal Observatory and the National Maritime Museum host a treasure-trove of souvenirs, gifts and books. The Stars, Space and Time Souvenirs at the Royal Observatory sells watches to clocks to Meridian beer to glow stars to freeze-dried ice foods just like astronauts use in space.

Our shop at Cutty Sark hosts a collection of souvenirs inspired by the world-famous tea clipper from special Cutty Sark tea to mini ship models. The National Maritime Museum shop sells a range of maritime souvenirs from a treasure chest, Captain’s hat to anchor themed gifts.

Visitors love to take home a souvenir from the home of time and astronomy, the incredible Cutty Sark and the largest maritime museum of the world. So be sure to allow extra time for your groups to explore our shops.

We have fascinating guidebooks that tell the stories of each site, and are priced at: £5 each, two for £8, or three for £10.
