From its hilltop setting in Greenwich Park, the Royal Observatory commands breathtaking views of Canary Wharf and the City of London.

Home to Greenwich Mean Time, the Observatory houses one of the world’s finest collections of time-related scientific instruments. You’ll have the option to book horologists and astronomers to share their expertise with your guests. We can also arrange telescope viewings in the courtyard and guided tours of the Time Galleries.
