  • See the Cutty Sark, the oldest surviving tea clipper in the world, and learn all about its historical adventures transporting tea from China in the 1800s
  • Stand on top of the point where the Eastern and Western hemispheres meet, and journey into the stars and beyond at the Royal Observatory
  • Get two-for-one instant access to two of London's best attractions, both in the beautiful borough of Greenwich

This two-for-one combo ticket gets you instant access to two of London's best attractions. Climb aboard and take the helm of the world's last surviving tea clipper, then journey into space at the historic home of British astronomy. Prepare for a day full of history, adventure, and excitement!

The Cutty Sark is a legendary 'tea clipper', which carried Britain's favorite beverage all the way from China in the 1800s. At the time it was the fastest ship in the world – which shows how much the Brits love their tea. Now it's an award-winning visitor attraction, where you can learn all about her record-breaking adventures all over the world, and explore the original interiors.

When you're back on dry land, it's time to take a trip to the stars at the Greenwich Royal Observatory, where you can see the Great Equatorial Telescope, Harrison’s clocks, the Shepherd Gate Clock, the Time Ball and the famous Octagon Room. You can even stand on the Meridian Line, where the Eastern and Western hemispheres meet!

It's the perfect double bill of history, science and culture, and a great day out in London's charming Greenwich.

Really enjoyed both visits. Also loved Greenwich itself - the market and the street food particularly.
A lovely walk from the Cutty Sark to the Observatory through the park. Not an easy walk but well worth it for the amazing views of London.
A wonderful sunny day certainly helped but highly recommend.

I had a wonderful time. The guided tour was Excellent! The weather, of course, was dismal. Bring an umbrella for a more thorough enjoyment, just in case.

Great day out with our 7 year old granddaughter

We really enjoyed the day to Greenwich.
However, I did think the planetarium was included in the Observatory ticket, but it wasn’t.
To be fair, the details did not list the planetarium but the Day Explorer advert showed it as part of the trip.
Planetarium was £8 per adult but well worth it. Probably best part of the day out.

Fantastic visit to both places the only sad thing was that you had to pay more for the planarian visit which was what people wanted to see please include this in future so there are no hidden extras
