Royal Observatory Greenwich

Blackheath Ave, Greenwich, London SE10 8XJ, UK


the observatory played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and because the prime meridian passes through it, it gave its name to Greenwich Mean Time. The scientific work of the observatory was moved elsewhere in the first half of 20th century and now it functions almost exclusively as a museum.
