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.

Firstly, it's a lonnnng walk up a very steep hill- not accessible for those with mobility challenges. But...once you get there its a lovely site with amazing views over London. Lots of interesting historical bits and bobs to look at, a shame there isn't much to interact with though. Friendly and helpful staff, and a lovely little gift shop.

Not great , The signage and tour guides are very poor , Its quite a long walk up hill to the Observatory The route is blocked by works in the park . There are no refreshments available even the ice cream hut is shut . we wandered into the shop looking for some sort of sustenance ,when we tried to go back into the museum a member of staff became confrontational about our route of entry . I can only assume he has power issues , suggest he takes training .

Yes, it’s historically significant and yes, it’s a ‘must do’ on a trip to Greenwich but at £20 per person it could & should be a better experience.

And why wasn’t the 1:00pm ‘time ball’ not operating. No reason given. Many of the displays were difficult to read &/or see with so many lights not working, and anti reflective coatings & films on display cases is not new technology.

I’m glad that we went, I hadn’t been here in more than 45 years and it is certainly an interesting place holding significant historic & cultural significance.
As they say (somewhat incorrectly), it’s where time begins.
