For families at the Royal Observatory

Lift closure

We're making improvements. From 7 to 28 May there will be no lift access to Flamsteed House or the Time and Longitude gallery. The Meridian Line and Gallery will still be accessible via wheelchair. Find out more about accessibility at Royal Museums Greenwich

 

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