An observatory situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River Thames. It played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and because the prime meridian passes through it, it gave its name to Greenwich Mean Time.
Walk across the 0 degree Meridian. Beautiful park and different view of the Capital with Canary Wharf in the foreground. Greenwich also has a market which is fun to visit. You can get there by DLR or a boat from Embankment which makes a great day trip.

“500 years of maritime history packed into one fantastic space. Hands-on exhibits make it fun for younger kids but this is definitely an all-ages attraction. Battles and boats galore plus free themed talks. (2 restaurants) ages: 3+ tube: Maze Hill or Cutty Sark (DLR) open: 10:00 to 17:00 costs: Free”
