Royal Observatory Greenwich
Designed by Christopher Wren, the Royal Observatory Greenwich was founded in 1675 to compute exact longitudes for navigational purposes. However, by 1948 London's glow had become too bright for star gazing, and the astronomers decamped to Sussex. Now the Old Royal Observatory is part of the National Maritime Museum . Discover the story of the search for longitude, the history of time and navigation, or stand on the line where east meets west and the point where the millennium started. Admission is free; some entrance fees may be charged for special exhibitions and events.
This place was really cool,especially if your into geography. You can stand at 0 degrees and be on either side of the world at the same time. the prime meridian is a good place to take pictures too. The maritime museum is also really cool. It has scientific instruments dating back to the 17005, in different scientific fields. I'd recommend it to older teens and adults because little kids may not understand the significance of it all.
