Situated in the nautical suburb of Greenwich, the 17th-century Royal Observatory still stands majestically to this day with a dedication to all things astronomical. Filled with fascinating information, the scientific institution is also closely linked to the world of timekeeping, thanks to its unique location.

The Greenwich Meridian boasts the longitude coordinate of 0°, separating Earth into two halves. Straddle the line to have one foot in the east and the other in the west. Greenwich Mean Time or GMT is the anchor around which the world’s time zones are based, with a display of marine timepieces on show at the Observatory to mark this.

You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the Time and Longitude Gallery, delving deep into the history of timekeeping and nautical navigation with an exhibit dedicated to objects, paintings and animations pertaining to 18th-century astronomers, mathematicians and clock-makers.
