We stopped here on our way up to the observatory. Another good place to visit while in Greenwich. They have restroom and gift shops. I would recommend shopping here because most of the items here are similar at the observatory.

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of
