The Royal Observatory, Greenwich is an observatory situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River Thames. It played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and is best known for the fact that the prime meridian passes through it, and thereby gave its name to Greenwich…
Go and stand on the meridian line. Also, the queens house, maritime museum, cutty sark, markets, Park, pubs and restaurants. Can also get a boat up the river.
Walk across the 0 degree Meridian. Beautiful park and different view of the Capital with Canary Wharf in the foreground. Greenwich also has a market which is fun to visit. You can get there by DLR or a boat from Embankment which makes a great day trip.
