Home of the Prime Meridian of the World, London's only planetarium, the Harrison timekeepers and the UK's largest refracting telescope.
Astronomy Photographer of the Year 10 am - 5pm
Lovely buildings, peaceful surroundings and an informative museum. Well worth the entry.
Take a picture of you standing on both Western and Eastern Hemispheres ;)
A must see.
Stand on the Worlds Famous Meridian Line
Don't miss units stencil just by the exit.
London's only planetarium
Really interesting museum about how we struggled to measure time and distances accurately throughout history
Be prepared to hike up a steep hill, but the view is rewarding.
Beautiful views of Canary Wharf
Don't miss out the true +0GTM at the Prime Meridian!
It's a reaLy small museum, bad to me was the fact that many galleries were on maintenance... The best for me was the "0 meridian line"
Great views from the top and interesting exhibitions. Some free to enter.
If you've come this far, you gotta take a picture with feet on either side of the Prime Meridian! Just outside the gates, you can get an amazing view of London from the gardens.
Small museum with a few cool interactive exhibits that will make you feel like a kid for the day. Don't miss the Prime Meridian and the view of Greenwich nearby! http://bit.ly/1rc4wFw
Best views of London
the place where time begins
One of Londons not to be missed attractions
Amazing views of London. Not quite as good as 'One Tree Hill' which is elsewhere in Greenwich Park
Entrance fee £7
If you just want to stand across the meridian, outside of the fenced area that costs to enter it's marked on the ground. On the N side of the Observatory (towards the river) through the black gates.
Stunning location with incredible views over London. If you want to stand on the Meridian line you can avoid the entry fee by heading to the marker under the courtyard to the right of the entrance.
You can straddle the Prime Meridian for free - The demarcation is also available OUTSIDE the main gate along the wall that runs underneath the Prime Meridian Sculpture on the museum grounds.
Well worth the visit. John Harrison's prototypes & the winning H4 chronometers are awesome to see!! Inspiring story!! :)
£4.80 for parking via blackheath entrance for 4hours maximum stay
It's a hike to get up to the Observatory from the National Maritime Museum, so make sure you leave some time for the walk. Also, look into wheelchairs for anyone with mobility issues.
Worth a visit. Owner Paul is very helpful.
GMT zero！Prime meridian of the world!
One of my favourite places in London. The gardens are lovely and the visits to the main buildings are a must-do from time to time.

Just £7 entrance for fascinating exhibitions on time, longitude and chance to stand on meridian line :-)
very good evening with the stars tour, even in the rain!!
I was looking for @astro_andre but couldn't find him, where in God's name is he?
Absolutely fabulous 'surprise trip' for the missus if you're in the part of town. Book a show in advance. Cheap and mind blowing.
Shame that's it's now pay, after many years of being free. The view from the hill, once you've managed the steep climb to the top via the paved walkway, is stunning. I look out now and wonder that w
Great place to go in fab surroundings and one of the best views anywhere in London.
On a nice day, watch the sun set over London from the top of the hill — stunning.
Well worth a visit. Fascinating story of the importance of timekeeping for navigation. The phrase “On the ball” has its routes here.
There is a fab comedy photo opportunity at reception near the meteorite...
