The Royal Observatory Greenwich has been selected as the specified site for the Restoration England portion of the 2018 specification. 

If you would like to visit the Royal Observatory Greenwich to support this element of your teaching we would recommend a self-guided visit with a particular focus on the north side of the site.

If you would like see a planetarium show too you are more than welcome but please remember that the learning outcomes for these shows will be STEM based rather than history.

We have lots of resources you can use to follow up on your visit such as visit guides, podcasts and even blogs.

A resource has also been created by AQA which can be used to support teaching of this section of the specification.
