The Peter Harrison Planetarium at the Royal Observatory Greenwich provides a versatile modern venue for evening events, with its striking architecture, contemporary lines and abundant light.

The Planetarium is equipped with one of the most advanced digital laser projectors in the world, which enables viewers to experience a journey through space with startling clarity. Of course we’ll treat your guests to a show, with qualified astronomers on hand to answer questions.

With large bay windows opening out onto a landscaped courtyard, the foyer adjoining the Planetarium makes an ideal location for dinner.

The courtyard areas provide beautiful outdoor spots for guests to mingle, weather-permitting and the Astronomy Galleries in the neighbouring Astronomy Centre provide plenty of conversation starters.
