Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Long for going to Greenwich observatory and then just got chance to visit and luckily on sunny day that could have very good view from the hill top. And inside the observatory also has so many watches and telescope esp for bigger one that so impressive.

    The very best bit of the visit was the helpful and friendly staff - nothing was too much trouble. The show itself was interesting and the set up is great but there isn't much in the way of "space" around which is rather perplexing. All in all, worth a visit

    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.
