The Planetarium: Learn about the stars and the world around us

Permanently Closed

Part of the National Maritime Museum, the Peter Harrison Planetarium opened in 2007 and replaces the now defunct London Planetarium in Marylebone. Using Europe's first digital laser planetarium projector, the 120-seat planetarium is housed inside a 45-tonne bronze cone, which in itself has won a top architectural award. Located next to the meridian line at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, the sides of the cone are aligned with astrological points. Shows screened at the Planetarium show images of space, as well as views looking back to Earth and up-to-the-minute images of space sent back by probes. While in the area, the vista from the top of the hill at the Royal Observatory takes in breathtaking views of East London and it also marks the spot where Greenwich Mean Time begins. There is also plenty of Tudor history to soak up here, while Greenwich Village has a number of shops, bars and cafes as well as the famous Greenwich Market.
