We took our 2 teenagers here over half term, and although none of us are overly fussed about 'space' and astronomy, it was a great visit, and we would highly recommend it. The guide was knowledgable without being geeky, and it was so amazing to see images projected onto the ceiling whilst sitting in a very comfy chair!

Wow what a great experience. We had an amazing time, comfortable seats, a wonderful presenter, fantastic and informative. It was so good it made me a little emotional. Wish it was longer - will definitely be returning for the other shows.

We took our youngest (aged 6) to see the Sky Tonight show at the Planetarium. A few things to point out if you haven’t been before. 1. It can be a slow walk up a big hill, so allow plenty of time if you need to encourage little legs that have traipsed around London all day. It took us about 20-25 minutes from Greenwich Wharf. 2. Book in advance if you can. Not only is it slightly cheaper, but the show we were at was full, meaning a few people that tried to buy tickets were disappointed. 3. The queue will form on the side near to the wall about 15-20 mins before showtime. The best seats are in the middle near the back, so try and get those. Our little one loved it. He gazed intently throughout the presentation and then asked the presenter a couple of questions at the end. It was lovely to have some interaction as other similar things I have been to have been more like a cinema. Minor niggle from me would be the seats. I found them really uncomfortable. Being tall isn’t great.... although the reclining seats were enough to make somebody sitting behind me doze off, snoring infrequently during the show. Great views of London/ Canary Wharf from up there too.... and the park offers a lovely respite from central London. One other tip is that if you get there via Boat you can pass under Tower Bridge en route. And heading back via the DLR gives a different perspective on the city. Enjoy it!

I went to the show; Islams contribution to astronomy and the Islamic lunar calendar marking the new moon. The show was fantastic and informative. I loved the planetarium as a child and still do, my little is very fond also. You leave learning bucket loads! The staff are helpful and friendly, cafe and outdoor space is scenic and parking available too!
