Beautiful Rooms - The Octagon Room, The Royal Observatory Greenwich

Monday, August 23, 2021 - 09:45

The Royal Observatory Greenwich is one of the most important scientific sites in the world. It is the home of British astronomy, Greenwich Meantime and the Prime Meridian of the world.

Founded in 1675 by Charles II and designed by Sir Christopher Wren, this museum offers a wealth of intimate and experiential event spaces.

Within Flamsteed House, the original home of the Astronomer Royal, is the Octagon Room, one of the last surviving interiors designed by Sir Christopher Wren. Originally used by the Astronomers’ Royal to gaze at the night sky, this elegant space is ideal for wedding ceremonies and private dining.

Enjoy spectacular views across London and the changing night sky through the soaring windows that surround the room.

There is even the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular views from the Meridian Courtyard before dining inside this most historic of space and we can arrange a telescope viewing in the iconic Great Equatorial Telescope as a perfect post dinner experience.
