Further Information for Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
 
The museum galleries in the Astronomy Centre will be open from 6.15pm for you to explore.
 
The Royal Observatory is located in the middle of Greenwich Park. Once the park closes to the public at 7pm, access to the Observatory will only be possible from St Mary's Gate (north west corner of the park), either by car (parking at the Observatory is free after 6pm) or via the shuttle bus provided (operating from 6.15pm onwards). Leaving the park after the event will be via the same gate. Guests are not permitted to walk through the park during closing hours, so guests must travel via car or shuttle bus. Taxi's are permitted to access the site, but must also access the park via St Mary's Gate.
