Join astronomers for a unique stargazing experience as the Royal Observatory event Evening with the Stars returns!

The night begins with a live planetarium show, introducing you to the wonders of the night sky.

Then, weather permitting, Observatory scientists will guide you through an astronomy masterclass using both our modern-day telescopes and our 130-year-old instrument: the Great Equatorial Telescope.

If the weather isn't playing nice, you'll still be able to enjoy talks from our astronomers on the history of the Royal Observatory, and ask everything you've ever wanted to know about astronomy during an exclusive evening tour.

A selection of hot drinks will be available, included in the price of your ticket.

So wrap up warm, and don't miss your chance to spend a night under the stars at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

Important information

We regret we are unable to offer refunds in the case of poor weather.

This event is not suitable for families with young children and has an age restriction of 7+.

Due to the historical nature of our site, there are some areas of the event that are only accessible via stairs. 

Sections of the evening take place outside, so we recommend wearing warm, waterproof clothing. 

As this event takes place when Greenwich Park is closed, there are limited ways to access the Observatory. Information on this is included in your ticket and further details will also be sent to you during the week leading up to your booking. Please familiarise yourself with this information before travelling to the site.
