Come with a bear called Ted (and companion Plant!) on an adventure around the Solar System, investigating different places and how they affect us.

Join Ted the Teddy Bear on a journey throughout the Solar System, learning about the things we find there and how they affect us.

A planetarium show for under-7s. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

With interactivity, music and rhyme, the show is a must for pre-school children.

Arriving at the Planetarium

The Planetarium is part of the Royal Observatory, at the top of a hill with spectacular views across London. Please allow enough time to get to us and aim to arrive at least 10 mins before the show’s start time, as latecomers cannot be admitted.

The Planetarium is open daily, except on the first Tuesday of each month when it is closed for essential maintenance.
