Charles II established the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park in 1675 to study the stars and improve navigation at sea.
You can see the clocks John Harrison developed to solve the problem of longitude here and stand astride the dividing point between east and west – the Meridian line.
There’s lots more to see as well, including a 4.5 billion year old meteorite, the Great Equatorial Telescope and the Greenwich Time Ball, which drops every day at 1.00pm.
