Since 1884, Greenwich has been where zero degrees longitude is marked. At the Royal Observatory you can stand astride the Prime Meridian, as it is known, meaning you have one foot in the eastern hemisphere and the other in the western one. The view from the Royal Observatory is one of the best in…

An observatory situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River Thames. It played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and because the prime meridian passes through it, it gave its name to Greenwich Mean Time.

Walk across the 0 degree Meridian. Beautiful park and different view of the Capital with Canary Wharf in the foreground. Greenwich also has a market which is fun to visit. You can get there by DLR or a boat from Embankment which makes a great day trip.

The Royal Observatory is a great place to visit. Even if you decide not to go in, there’s a great view of the University, Canary Wharf and the City from here and this is where you can find the meridian line; the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Another of my favourite places. Visit the Greenwich Meridian (dateline) where time begins and ends. Where else can you be in both the eastern and western hemispheres at the same time?

“500 years of maritime history packed into one fantastic space. Hands-on exhibits make it fun for younger kids but this is definitely an all-ages attraction. Battles and boats galore plus free themed talks. (2 restaurants) ages: 3+ tube: Maze Hill or Cutty Sark (DLR) open: 10:00 to 17:00 costs: Free”

History Museum
“Launched on 22 November 1869 in Dumbarton, Scotland, it embarked on its maiden voyage from London to Shanghai on 16 February 1870. On its first voyage, Cutty Sark carried ‘large amounts of wine, spirits and beer’, and came back from Shanghai loaded with 1.3 million pounds of tea. There are some great spots for food and drinks around the Cutty Sark, including Greenwich street food market. ”

Park
“Stunning park with amazon views and rolling hills. One of the loveliest in London. See the old King's House, the Old Naval College (now Greenwich University campus), and Maritime Museum. Stand on the world-famous Meridian Line, the home of Greenwich Mean Time, which is the line that between the two sides of the world! ”
