Visit to the Royal Observatory, Greenwich

Recommended Posts

These are pictures of a visit to the Royal Observatory in 2017. The history is very interesting, especially when you're a watch enthusiast and interested in horology in general.

It wasn't too busy and I can highly recommend taking a tour with one of the guides. Usually I like to explore on my own but the guide was very knowledgeable. 

The museum is quite nice as well and shows the history and need for reliable time instruments through the ages. And especially the need for accurate time for navigation.
