Arriving at the Planetarium

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

Please note that pushchairs are not allowed into the planetarium itself but there is a designated buggy park in the foyer. 

The Planetarium is open daily, except for the first Wednesday of every month when it is closed for essential maintenance.
