  • I live locally and, whilst I've often visited Greenwich Park (best view in London) and the free exhibits at the Observatory, I'd never been to the Planetarium so decided to visit with friends when I h...  more »

  • Felt like the short films on offer were a good start for any people interested in the basics of space or anyone taking children. The exhibits are also pretty cool - especially loved the photo displays on offer. There are multiple short films on offer and we saw three of them. There is quite a lot of overlap between most of them and by the end of the third one it was getting pretty tedious as they were essentially repeating themselves. The only one I suggest watching is the the one narrate by Benedict Cumberbatch if you’re an adult. If you have a child then two of the films would be suitable.
  • Great Experience with friendly staff. The show was amazing, my mum and i watched neighboring planets, was not expecting the narrator to speak live during the show - it made it more real and fun. We truly enjoyed it!
  • It was a really bad experience for us. Paid for such expensive tickets so expected a good show and my son (3 years old and who is a huge fan of planets and stars )was really excited. Instead the show was stopped and we were asked to walk out as our son kept saying WOW STARS WOW!!! In exact words 'People have come to listen facts about stars and galaxies and not a young child noise. Please take the child out' It was really rude and my husband wasn't allowed to go back in coz we thought atleast one of us could watch it. Bad bad experience! Never going there again.
  • Not the best planetarium I’ve ever been to, but not bad. Combined with the Royal Observatory it’s a nice way to spend an afternoon.
  • i like thiz buliding because i want to go every saturday and watch Solar Storm and Night Sky.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
