Stand astride the Prime Meridian at the Royal Observatory Greenwich

Greenwich, London

Stand with one foot in the east and one in the west and feel on top of the world. Climb over the roof of The O2 and ride on London’s only cable car.

Head to the Royal Observatory, the home of Greenwich Mean Time, and stand astride the Meridian line at Longitude 0°.  Marvel at the scientific discoveries that changed our understanding of time and space and see how the Astronomers Royal used to live and work.

Take in views over London and look out for the iconic O2 arena, also on the Meridian line.  Get there in just eight minutes on the speedy MBNA Thames Clippers for an exhilarating walk over the roof at Up at The O2, with 360° views over London.

Relax on a ‘flight’ across the Thames on the Emirates Air Line, London’s only cable car, which gives a new view over the capital’s skyline.

For the height of style, stay over for a five star night away at the new InterContinental London The O2.
