This excellent value for money event includes a planetarium show and access to the historic Royal Observatory Greenwich for 50% off the normal combined ticket price. Unless otherwise stated the planetarium show will be Meet the Neighbours, taking you on a fantastic journey through our solar system and beyond with an astronomer presenting live.

After the show ends you will be able to visit the historic Royal Observatory at your leisure, where you'll find lots to explore including a drop-in station with one of our Observatory Explainers (available 11:00-14:30). They can reveal to you and your family some of the hidden histories of the Royal Observatory that you might otherwise miss.
