Take an incredible trip through time and space! A show at the Peter Harrison Planetarium is like joining a tour bus of the Universe.  It will take you on an amazing journey to explore and experience the wonders of the night sky guided by real astronomers.

By combining real images from spacecraft and telescopes with advanced CGI, all projected onto a fully immersive dome, the Planetarium can fly you into the heart of the Sun, transport you to distant galaxies, show you the birth of a star or land you on Mars. The Planetarium is located at the centre of the Royal Observatory Greenwich site, the home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian of the World.

The Royal Observatory is also home to the Harrison timekeepers and the UK's largest refracting telescope. There are new Planetarium shows throughout the day, some especially designed for young children.
