After being closed for 3 months for restoration works, the Royal Observatory will re-open its doors to the public on the 1st April 2022.
Join the fam trip to be one of the first visitors to admire the newly restored Octagon Room, designed by Wren in 1675. See Harrison’s clocks, stand on the Meridian Line
and take in stunning views of London.

Afternoon Tea in the Orangery
For lunch, you will enjoy a traditional afternoon tea which will be served in the Orangery of the Queen’s House.

Guided tour of The Queen’s House * NEW FOR 2022
This beautiful royal villa was designed by Inigo Jones and is Britain’s first classical building and a pioneering masterpiece of 17th-century architecture.
A guided tour of the Queen’s House is the best way to understand its history, from its use as a royal residence to today.
Today, it is an art gallery, home to over 450 works of art, including the iconic Armada Portrait for Queen Elizabeth I.

Cutty Sark & History of tea tour * NEW FOR 2022
Cutty Sark is the world’s sole-surviving tea clipper, celebrated for her record-breaking passages around the globe.
Find out about the international story behind the humble cup of tea, before it became Britain’s favourite drink.
Learn about the role Cutty Sark played in bringing tea to the UK and discover the influence of tea on British culture and society once it arrived.
