Greenwich Observatory is one of those places on most people’s “Must See” list. It’s the place where you can take the time to stand on the Prime Meridian-where East meets West. A once in a lifetime experience! The Royal Observatory is famous for being the place where longitude and Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) were founded.
The Observatory consists of several buildings that were commissioned by King Charles II to study astronomy. The oldest building is Flamsteed House, designed by Christopher Wren and built in 1675. Flamsteed House was home to the Royal astronomers and today you can take a glimpse at their private quarters, see the time ball in action and explore artefacts associated with time and the importance of time in our lives.
So, if it’s on your list why not make a really memorable experience and tie it in with a luxury break at our beautiful hotel in Bromley? Of course the Royal Observatory is just one of the Royal Museums located in Greenwich, the others being The National Maritime Museum, The Cutty Sark and The Queen’s House.
Far too many things to do all in one day. so taking a two or three night break with us here at Bromley Court will give you more than enough time to see all the sights at your own pace.
