The Royal Observatory Greenwich is currently closed to visitors as part of an exciting redevelopment project.

You can still book a show at London’s only planetarium, and explore the wonders of the night sky with our expert astronomers. Astronomy Photographer of the Year is also open every day at the National Maritime Museum.

The Observatory will reopen in April. We can’t wait to welcome you back.
