    Have been twice in the last 4 years. It's worth the trip and the visit. It just seems to be one of those need to visit t least once spots so you can straddle the line. Try to get there before the ball drops (I think at 1pm) We usually take the boat up the river and the train back. The park and other attractions between the river and the observatory are also worth seeing on the way back down the hill and you can eat in Greenwich before departing. We have used the London pass for entry.

    My children (ages 4 and 5) absolutely loved Ted’s Space adventure, and the astronomer host was fantastic. Can’t fault him - engaging for both children and adults alike.

    But as a parent, I wish it would have been more informative. They didn’t learn anything new. There was also a missed opportunity to plant seeds for a take away message or conclusion. Because the other shows are for ages 7+ we have a local resource that has the potential to be brilliant that we can’t use for a couple more years. I really wish they could secure funding to make some more films as nothing much has changed over the years, particularly for children ages 5-7 to help captivate them and secure an interest in astronomy at that early age. But despite this, it was a great afternoon out.

    Highly recommended for history buffs! Part of the Royal Museums Greenwich, this is a gigantic warehouse of maritime-related objects that also houses a conservation group. Really enjoyed a two-hour Thursday walking tour in a small group with friendly staff guides, looking at everything from astonishing collections of paintings to Admiral Nelson's tea cups to early charts drawn on calfskin. We also chatted with conservators at work. The collection is not near the other Greenwich museums nor other tourist attractions. But getting there took only about half an hour from Victoria Station via Southeastern Railway to the Kidbrooke station, which is a few minutes' walk from the collection.
