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.
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.
The O2 Arena
The O2 is housed in the building that was originally the Millenium Dome - a massive structure built to host a year-long celebration of the Millenium. In its new form, the O2 opened in June 2007 as a major entertainments venue - it has The O2 arena, indigoO2, The O2 bubble, Vue cinema, Special Events, bars and restaurants. The O2 arena provides rock or pop concerts with major bands such as Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Scissor Sisters, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Prince and Take That all perform in the first year of the O2 arena. The Vue cinema has 11 screens and has the biggest screen in London. The O2 is just right next to the North Greenwich Tube station.
