Explore space at the Greenwich Planetarium

The Peter Harrison Planetarium, beside the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park, is a a 120 seater 'digital laser planetarium' which opened in 2007.


The Planetarium takes visitors on an audio-visual trip through time and space inside a £17.7m 45 tonne bronze clad cone, tilted at 51.5o to the horizontal (the latitude of Greenwich), and situated aptly on the prime meridian itself. All this for the sum of just £6, which can't be too bad.

Current shows include Invaders of Mars, Sky Tonight Live and Star Life. For more information visit the website at http://www.nmm.ac.uk/visit/planetarium-shows/.

  1. This is scary, I checked your website first thing in the morning before I went to the doctors but you hadn't updated yet. When I got out of my appointment I spontaneously decided to go to Greenwich and ended up exploring space at the Greenwich Planetarium. Only to come home after and find this!

    Fascinating!
