Greenwich is known as the beginning point of global time. Time in different countries is adjusted according to Greenwich Meridian. Therefore, you cannot miss the Royal Observatory.

Elegantly standing at the top of the hill, Royal Observatory in Greenwich silently tells the stories of the great astronomer, John Flamsteed. The original observatory building named after John Flamsteed was designed by Sir Christopher Wren who also designed one of the land marks of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral. The building is in the traditional symmetrical style, with a lot of windows to see through in the convenience of observing the sky. Constructed by dark brown bricks, Flamsteed House looks rather serious and a little dull. The appearance of the building doomed its fate to be a research place, instead of a royal house.
