Christmas opening times

Over the Christmas period the Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum, Cutty Sark and Queen's House will be open as usual. We are closed to the public from 24-26 December. Plan your next visit

There are lots of things for children to see and do at the Royal Observatory. Stand on the historic Prime Meridian of the World, see an awe inspiring show at London's only planetarium and explore Big Bang theory in our interactive galleries.
