London: Royal Museums Greenwich Day Pass
- Duration: 6 hours
Make your way to the Royal Observatory Greenwich, which is located in Greenwich Royal Park. As you do, enjoy dramatic views of London across Greenwich Royal Park, the City of London, and the River Thames. Once inside, pick up an audio guide with ten languages available. Your visit will begin in the Meridian Courtyard. Stand astride the Prime Meridian Line with one foot in the east and the other in the west at the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). The tour will take you through Flamsteed House, where you will walk in the footsteps of the Astronomers Royal. Visit the Octagon Room, which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and is one of the best preserved Wren interiors in London. See Harrison’s clocks, the inventions that changed the world. Discover the Shepherd Gate Clock mounted outside, which was the first clock to show Greenwich Mean Time to the public. Learn about the discoveries ...
Informative... with children would be good if there were a few more 'hands on' tasks.
The 'Best of Greenwich' day tour is both informative and fun. It's an entertaining and eco-friendly way to experience the magic of maritime Greenwich. See the amazing Painted Hall in the Old Royal Naval College, where movies such as Johnny Depp's 'On Stranger Tides' were filmed. Marvel at the elegance of Sir Christopher Wren’s architecture, the same architect who also designed St. Paul's Cathedral in London. Straddle the Prime Meridian - the very center of world time and space - at the Greenwich Royal Observatory. See the amazing clocks of John Harrison, the man who would eventually solve the " longitudinal problem " for mankind. Climb aboard the magnificent tea clipper Cutty Sark, now fully restored to her original splendor. Appreciate the naval and maritime paintings at Queen's House. You'll also get to enjoy a lovely pub lunch by the River Thames. Put on your favorite walking shoes...

Great activity especially if the weather is clear, because from Greenwich there is a magnificent view of the villa. For Cutty Sark, I would recommend taking a guided tour! The history of the boat is inspiring. The return or go to Greenwich can be done by boat and I highly recommend it.
Great way of visiting both attractions paying a reasonable price. Walking distance is about 10 minutes.
The view was amazing but no one said anything about the hike which was pretty demandind?
Very interesting day and good to hear about the history
