  • The planetarium is one of London’s hidden gems. It’s amazing how many people haven’t visited and when they do they are bowled over. If you haven’t been before I advise going to see the night sky live ...  more »
  • Came here today with my partner. Was really looking forward to the experience. Never been before. Paid £30 for both of us to enter the observatory and the planetarium show. We weren't told on booking ...  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.
