Royal Observatory in Greenwich With River Cruise

Combine a trip to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich with a cruise on the River Thames.

Combine a trip to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich with a cruise on the River Thames.
When you get to the observatory you can stand across the world-famous Meridian Line, with one foot in each hemisphere. Set in a charming historic building, originally made for the Astronomers Royal, with a modern planetarium alongside, the Greenwich observatory is a great place to discover the stories of space and how we have found out what we know. To top it all you will see dramatic views of London from the hill in Greenwich Royal Park.

Your ticket includes:

  • Hop-on Hop-off all day sightseeing cruise ticket

  • Entrance to the Royal Observatory (Flamsteed House and Meridian Courtyard) and an audio guide

  • Attraction tickets are untimed which gives you extra flexibility over arrangements

  • You do not have to go on the cruise and visit the attraction on the same day, but you can if you want
