The kids can try their hand at maritime skills in a gallery featuring hands-on exhibits such as an interactive ship simulator.

Must See

At the Royal Observatory Greenwich, a 10-minute bus ride from the hotel, you can see where Greenwich Mean Time was established and stand astride the Prime Meridian of the World. Characterised by the onion dome housing the Great Equatorial Telescope, the observatory sits at the top of a hill in Greenwich Park. In the planetarium, you can journey through the solar system to distant galaxies.

Local Tips
