Great Equatorial Encounter

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 16th Aug 2018

Visit Greenwich's largest Victorian telescope and experience what it's like to visit the Observatory at night… during the day!

Come visit the Great Equatorial Telescope in the daytime to find out more about this amazing 1893 Victorian instrument, the people who used it and the science it was used for. This visit includes telescope footage and a virtual reality experience to simulate elements of a night time observing session at the Royal Observatory. An astronomer will be on hand throughout to answer all your queries about the cosmos.

Please note that the telescope is only accessible by stairs. This is not an observing session, but uses footage captured on clear nights.

Cost: £6
