The Royal Observatory is #21 in our London Bucket List

Why not skip the romantic meal in a fancy restaurant this year, and take your date to see the stars at the Royal Observatory?

The observatory will be laying on a romantically-themed planetarium show, followed by the chance to look at the moon through their 18-tonne Victorian telescope. You'll also get to straddle the famous the Meridian line on the forecourt.

The evening will also give you a chance to talk to a number of different astronomers about the life cycles of stars and galaxies (although we're not sure where the romance fits into that!)

Note: If the weather prevents everyone from observing then footage taken through the telescope will be projected through the eyepiece instead, to provide an experience that is close as possible to the real thing. Refunds will not be given.

So that fantastic view that we see today was just a b… continued”
