We want to ensure that all visitors, staff and volunteers feel safe and comfortable when exploring our sites.
Our COVID-19 safety measures include enhanced cleaning, safe distancing and ticketed entry.
We highly recommend wearing a face covering at all indoor venues and enclosed spaces.
You must have a timed entry ticket to visit the Observatory, even if you're a Member. We recommend booking online in advance to avoid disappointment.
To make the most of your day out, buy a Royal Museums Greenwich Day Pass and get access to both the Royal Observatory and historic ship Cutty Sark.

Shows run Saturday-Monday during term time and daily during school holidays. For a full schedule and how to book, click here.
Located in the Astronomy Centre at the Royal Observatory, the Astronomy Café & Terrace is open at weekends and school holidays to Planetarium ticket holders. You can also pick up refreshments from stalls just outside the main entrance to the Observatory, or head towards the Parkside Café just down the hill at the National Maritime Museum.
Find out useful information about facilities at our museums including cloakrooms, baby change and accessibility, and information for visitors with disabilities coming to any of our sites.
An exciting redevelopment of the Royal Observatory Greenwich is taking place. However, some galleries you're used to may be closed for refurbishment during this time. We're offering all visitors 50% off tickets while the works are carried out.
