- Reduced capacity and one way routes
- Increased cleaning regime
- Sanitiser stations
- Card payments only
- Screens at all our cash desks
- Online bookings only
- Some interactives, touch screens and audioguides will be unavailable
Located in the Astronomy Centre at the Royal Observatory, the Astronomy Café & Terrace is a relaxed spot in which to enjoy a light lunch before strolling through Greenwich Park. The café’s outdoor terrace is a coveted spot on sunny days. The Astronomy Café & Terrace is open to all, not just museum visitors.
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.
