Top things to see and do with kids

A day out with the kids in Greenwich is not just tons of fun, it's a chance to hurtle through space and time itself.

Take a tour of the Universe with our astronomers at the Plantearium, touch a 4.5 billion-year-old meteorite, stand astride the Prime Meridian where east and west meet.

Imagine life at sea onboard Cutty Sark and meet the characters that bring the ship's stories to life, become an explorer in the National Maritime Museum, get to know Nelson, try the Ship Simulator and go wild in the AHOY! children's gallery.

We promise you'll have so much fun you'll want to come back for more!
