Royal Observatory Greenwich
The Royal Observatory Greenwich is one of London's landmark attractions and home of the so-called 'Greenwich Meridian Line' - a line which represents the physical embodiment of 'zero degrees longitude' and divides east and west in the same way that the equator divides north and south.
The Observatory's other attractions include a 28-inch telescope, a Time ball Flamsteed House (designed by Sir Christopher Wren) and a Camera obscura as well as galleries and displays relating both to astronomy and to the concept and measurement of 'time'.
The Observatory is open to the public daily between 10.00 and 17.00 with last admission at 16.30 and the last planetarium show at 16.00. During the summer months, the Meridian courtyard stays open until 20.00.
Admission is free of charge.
Crystal Palace Park
The Crystal Palace was constructed for the Great Exhibition of 1851. Originally it was located in Hyde Park, but due to its huge success it was transferred to the London Borough of Bromley and became a venue for the Victorian celebration of the British Empire. The Palace itself was destroyed by a fire in 1936 and little of it still remains, but the Park and its many attractions still exists. One of its main attractions is the newly restored Dinosaur Park, which dates back to 1851 and was the first in the world. Here visitors can view statues of life-size dinosaurs, prehistoric reptiles and mammals, as well as examples of geology which cover 350 million years of Britain's evolution.
The remains of the original palace that can be seen in the park include the Terrace Arches and the Sphinx . Further there is the largest maze in Britain, a Cafe and a children's playground. Football fans might want to incorporate a visit to the National Sports Centre, which is located in the center of the park and home to Crystal Palace FC. The Sports Centre is also a popular venue for concerts and other events. Free parking spaces are available at the Sports Centre and other locations near the main entrances. Toilets, including disabled toilets, can be found all over the park. Entrance to all attractions, apart from the National Sports Centre, is free. Opening times : Daily from 7:30 until half an hour after dusk.

Greenwich Park is a Royal Park located in the south-eastern part of London. It is the oldest of the Royal Parks and was first enclosed in 1433. Its original use was as a hunting ground for the Royal Family.
Smaller than other outer-London Royal parks, at 183 acres, it is laid out around the buildings of Maritime Greenwich, and forms part of the Greenwich World Heritage Site. The Old Royal Observatory, the Royal Naval College, the National Maritime Museum and the Queen's House are all within the area.
The whole complex is free to enter and it is open daily from 6am for pedestrians (one hour later for vehicles) and closes at dusk.
