Do the Ultimate Time Trail

Lift closure

We're Making Improvements. There will be no lift access to Flamsteed House or the Time and Longitude gallery for the foreseeable future. The Meridian Line and Gallery are still accessible via wheelchair. Find out more about accessibility at Royal Museums Greenwich


Embark on our Ultimate Time Trail during your visit and discover the source of the famous six-pips sound that can be heard on BBC radio marking the hour. See the watch that survived the Titanic disaster, and the historic timekeepers that that solved the problem of how to find longitude at sea. 

Embark on your journey through time
