The Royal Observatory

The Galaxy and Beyond

A textbook can never do justice to something as awe-inspiring and as boundless as the universe; the page cannot contain so many wonders. However, should you wish to unlock your child’s wonder at the Cosmos, this Experience is for you and your child. Set in beautiful Greenwich Park, with stunning views of the whole of London, the Peter Harrison Planetarium and Astronomy Centre will set your child’s sights into the far reaches of the Universe. The Astronomy Centre will allow your child to explore the Solar System, the nearest stars to our solar system – with their planets in the habitable zone, the Milky Way, Andromeda and the furthest reaches of the universe. The Peter Harrison Planetarium has mesmerising shows that bring the cosmos to life and, for those who are interested in our history of star gazing, the Royal Observatory is another ticketed option.

A Clarendon Inspires mentor will arrive at the pick up address to give your children an Inspire session and drop your children off at the drop off address, where they will also give a Build session. Clarendon Inspires believes that it is important to invigorate the body, as well as the mind, so each Experience includes some activity time in the park (weather permitting).

Mentors

An inspiring full day Experience. Would highly recommend. Loading all the information they’d learnt onto the Clarendon Portal at the end of the day is a brilliant resource.
