Join astronomers for a unique stargazing experience as Evening with the Stars returns!
The night begins with a live planetarium show, introducing you to the wonders of the night sky.
Then, after sunset and weather permitting, Observatory astronomers will guide you across the night sky with both 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.
We regret that we are unable to offer refunds in the case of poor weather.
