The Altazimuth Pavilion Project

With thanks to the generosity of Royal Museums Greenwich Members, Patrons and other supporters, the Altazimuth Pavilion is currently undergoing major restoration work to re-establish the Royal Observatory Greenwich as a working observatory once more.

Through the overwhelming success of the 2017 Members and Patrons Appeal and the generosity of Viridor Credits Environmental Company, the Heritage of London Trust and The Aurelius Charitable Trust - we raised in excess of £150,000 for this project which will restore the unique Altazimuth Pavilion and will install new telescopes allowing us to capture and stream images of lunar, deep sky and solar targets here in the heart of Greenwich.

Works began in February 2018 and we anticipate they will be completed late April 2018, with the reopening of the Altazimuth Pavilion early this summer.

The Grade II Listed Altazimuth Pavilion has long been an important part of the Royal Observatory’s story and this exciting project is a landmark moment in the Museum’s history, transforming the site into a stargazing hub for the first time in 60 years.
