Planetarium & Astronomy Centre

Lifts out of order at Royal Observatory

Recent weather conditions have damaged the lifts for the Astronomy Centre galleries and Planetarium, and the Time Galleries at Flamsteed House. See access information for Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum.

Planetarium closures

Please note that the Planetarium will be closed for maintenance on Tuesday 5 July with no shows that day, and also on the first Tuesday of every month except August.
