London Planetarium, UK

The building that once housed the London Planetarium in Marylebone Road, near Baker Street is now part of Madame Tussauds and is no longer related to astronomy.

The brand new Peter Harrison Planetarium is a state-of-the-art planetarium at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. It is the centrepiece of the Royal Observatory's recent redevelopment project and is the only planetarium in London.

A variety of stunning astronomy related films are shown on the new digital laser planetarium projector giving the audience a chance to view the earth and the solar system from space and explore the stars and galaxies of our universe.

You are advised to book your tickets before your visit to avoid disappointment.
